Birthday Bucket

This birthday gift promises buckets of fun!

A raspberry pink bucket picked up at Hobby Lobby looks even cuter personalized with vinyl lettering. (I will share directions for working with vinyl in a future post.) Fun surprises fill the bucket, and the gift presentation is complete with a fringe of ribbon and fabric strips tied to the handle.

I love the colour of this bucket. Vinyl lettering sounds tricky so I can't wait to hear how it's done.

Another masterpeice chez Lester !

I don't know how you do it, all things considered. What an inspiration !

I love the bucket! Any child would love it too.
I hope you are feeling better.
(I also hope Joe gave you an envelope from Julie and I. Just wanted to be sure.)

What a cute idea, Melissa! Your presentations are always excellent, and this is a case in point. Love the bucket and the cute lettering, the ribbons, all.

A Touch of Country, the bucket holds little treats most any 4-year-old would love: a cute coloring book and bundle of markers -- both tied with ribbon -- and two boxes of candy. By now, I hope Lizzy has emptied the bucket of these treats and filled it with her own treasures!

This has been a inspiration for me. I have tried to think of things to carry to the nursing home to cheer them up. This is perfect and will work for female or male. Just make according. If they can have sweets that can be done and if not then maybe crossword puzzles. Thanks so much.

Hi Melissa,

I speak English not well but I am going to try.

I also suffer from a chronic pain. I am surprised to see all that you make for your family and your friends.

You are full of courage, you make nice things, you have 4 children still small.

I am admiring.

You are so creative! I love the names on the buckets. I wish I can hire you for their next birthday.
