Flamingos at the BBQ
It’s Ten on the 10th where ten fun and talented bloggers share fun ideas and projects for under $10.00. This months theme is BBQ. We love BBQ here at the castle so this was right up my alley! I saw this pail and knew it would be the perfect thing to bring in some flamingos at the BBQ.
Before I go any further, I want to give a great big shout out to our hostess Terrie from Decorate and More With Tip. Some days I think hosting must be like herding cats! Thank you Terrie.
When we BBQ I love to set a fun table.
Even more than that, I love having everything contained and in easy reach.
This cute little pail fit the bill for both of those things.
Even better – it was 75% off!
This sweet pale cost me $6.25. Woo Hoo!
My theme for my BBQ is pink flamingos with lots of navy.
First step, cutting out a stencil on my Silhouette from scraps of vinyl I had in my studio.
Once the stencil was cut, I simply applied it to the pail.
Then using pink acrylic paint, I stippled the paint onto the pail.
Once the paint dried, I peeled off the stencil and painted a pink band on a raised area on the pail.
Once the paint dried, a few painted details made my flamingos come to life!
Since I used multi-surface paints, no sealing was required.
After adding a few bows, my pail was ready for the BBQ.
This sweet pail was the perfect size for keeping the napkins, straws, and utensils all together, nice and tidy!
As an added bonus, the pail makes a perfect centerpiece!
It also matches my pink flamingo plates from the Target dollar spot that I purchased last year.
I had all supplies other than the pail in my stash. Which helped bring this project in easily under $10.00.
Yep, there are definitely pink flamingos at the BBQ!
Please join me now in checking out all of the other wonderful ideas at my fellow blogger’s sites:
