This 4th of July post is sponsored by Michaels.
I’m so excited to be a part of the new Michaels Makers team! And to celebrate, I’m sharing an easy Independence Day gift idea with you — with free printables!!
They’re perfect for party favors or neighbor gifts.
Choose the “Have a POPPING 4th of July” option for a bucket of popcorn
and the “Have a SIZZLING 4th of July” tag for a bag of firecracker-style licorice!
(And I even made you a set of blanks so you can use them for anything else – even serving containers!)
I’ll share the printables with you in a moment (I even made a set of blanks for you!) … but first, here’s how easy this project was. Michael’s now has online shopping — and they have project ideas along with one-click shopping lists for those projects, making it easy to get everything you want easily!
Here’s the project I adapted:
Obviously, I had to adapt the shopping list a bit simply to choose different paint colors. I went with red, white and blue!
So here’s what I did:
I visited Michaels.com to check out the project ideas and settled on the Polka-Dot Painted Galvanized Bucket. It was super easy to order online, and all I did is change the paint colors to red, white and blue. The supplies are easy:
The project page even comes with these easy-to-follow instructions:
So here’s step 1:
And step 2:
Note: when you paint the dots, slightly rock the spouncer back and forth to assure paint is placed on the curved surface of the pail.
Then, once the paint dries, fill each bucket with your treat of choice and add a tag!
I’ve even provided some blank tags if you choose a different treat to share! Or, you might use the blank tags on buckets you use to serve at your Independence Day BBQ party!
Here are the printables:
