Bucket Advent

This is the other project that I worked on lately. I think I am going to have to enlist the help of a friend who is a wonderful seamstress (hint hint) to finish/fix it! I saw the idea in Pottery Barn last year but of course I am not going to pay what they want for it when I can make one... or so I thought. So... here is the ... let's call it... rough draft...


I want to replace the twine with ribbon and sew it where I can get the buckets to all stay facing forward. I also need to measure my mantle and do better about making it fit.

Peace and Love!

Such a cute advent bucket idea! Too cute! I think you did a really good job! As for your other post it was like that for me for a bit I had such a hard time! But not this week! Now I feel like I could use a few more blogs to read, hahaha! Not with summer coming! Sometimes I look every few days and write one comment for all of them, like the fact that I love those tags! They are soo cute! And look so good! :>

Not to say I'm assuming that I'm the sewing friend you referred to, but I'd be glad to help you finish it up - although it looks like you've done a great job so far! If I understand what you want to do, it should be simple. Let me know!
