Beaded Sap Bucket

I'm not a hot weather person.  Warm, yes.  Hot, no.  It zaps my concentration.  It's hot in my neck of the woods today.  The more I tried to work outside, the less I got done.  So, a nice simple project in the studio was a better option.



How about a beaded sap bucket?



All I did was decide where I wanted the beads to drape,



and hot glued them on.  It takes practice to keep the drape of the beads.   Basically, I drug the hot glue gun along the underside of the beads, while pushing them up slightly.  Then I pressed the beads into the glue, quickly. Does that make sense?  I really need to do a video.  Anyway, I painted over the whole thing with a white paint/gesso mix.



It's simple, but a nice touch.

  3. Rosemary, you are a genius! I absolutely LOVE this idea (and may have to copy it some day). My daughter has plenty of plastic bead necklaces lying around.
    The final look of the bucket is gorgeous. Oh, and I am drooling over that chair you painted & the awesome lace runner. I'm saving these pics to my inspiration file...thank you!

  12. Yes, days like this are best spent inside creating, Rosemary! It has been very hot and humid here, too. Any rain we've gotten hasn't cooled things off and it's supposed to be like this for the rest of the week {at least}. The bucket looks so pretty with the beads. Very romantic!

  14. This is a great project for any kind of weather you're trying to escape. What a perfect little piece to tuck in somewhere. It didn't get out of the 60s here in my neck of the woods today. That's perfect for me, but I was still sweating while out digging in the garden. I couldn't live where it was hot and/or humid all the time. Rain humidity is good, as long as it's a cool rain. Heat makes me cranky, so I have hot-day projects, too. On the other hand, I have friends who are "enjoying" the 110+ degree heat in AZ. Ugh...couldn't do it myself.

  23. Hi! I found you at Sherry's open house link party. I love what you did with the bucket. I might have to borrow your idea for a similar bucket I've had sitting in my garage for several months now waiting for an idea to come to me. Thanks for the inspiration. Robyn P.S. If I do use your idea and post my project on my blog, I'll be sure to give you credit. Thanks!

  28. that looks very pretty! It reminds me of the project my sister did on her round table in her sitting room. It was missing some trim and she added beads like that and then painted it. I love the texture it adds!

    I know what you mean about the "drape of the beads" I have glued them on some of my Christmas boxes...it does take time.

    Oh, and I came back to find the name of the "Blending Marker whatever pen".
