I’m already anticipating summer – I can’t be the only one! I have a fun project for you today, for all those fun summer parties and get-togethers that you’re looking forward to – it’s to make your own Chevron Drink Container. It will add a touch of fun to a boring drink caddy, and you can use it over and over all summer long (or anytime really!)
It’s a fun, simple project, and sky’s the limit on what designs you can create on your own container. To make one, you’ll need the following:
–galvanized bucket (I found mine at Michael’s)
–masking tape or vinyl stencil (for taping off your design)
–painters markers (I was sent these from Elmer’s, but all opinions are my own and I love love love painters!)
So first you’ll want to tape off a design. I used my Silhouette machine and cut a stencil template out of vinyl, but you can use masking tape to tape off chevron lines too. Stick the tape or the vinyl to your container:
Then just color in the open lines – I used a wide-tipped white painter for this:
After it’s all colored in, let it dry, but drying time doesn’t take long. But the time I was done with my final row, the top row was dry.
When it’s dry, you can remove the tape/vinyl very carefully and you’ll be left with your nice crisp lines:
I then took neon painters (cause neon is all the rage!) and hand-drew in a few more lines in the negative space. They’re not exact or perfect, but I like that about it.
Now stand back and enjoy! I don’t think you’ll be able to wash the container (I haven’t tried it) because I think the design would wipe off with scrubbing, so be aware of that.
Fill it up with your beverage of choice and kick the party off!
