Paint Bucket Turned Candy Holder

Materials Needed:

  • new, clean paint bucket
  • spray primer
  • chalkboard spray paint
  • painter's tape
  • chalk

Clean and Tape Bucket

Wash new paint can with mild soap and water. Dry with towel. Use painter's tape to protect top and bottom edges as well as the handle and lid.

Spray Primer

In a well-ventilated area, apply one coat of spray primer to can. Tip: When using spray paint, move paint can in long, even strokes. Apply paint in a thin layer to prevent drips.

Spray Chalkboard Paint

In the same manner as primer, apply two coats of spray chalkboard paint. Allow it to fully dry before removing tape slowly to prevent paint from pulling away.
