Tutorial: KFC Bucket upcycle!8:45 pm
Right this is when my family thinks I'm truly insane. Your parents invite you to dinner, they're getting KFC. That's cool, you think, I like the KFC chips. Then when you get there you see all the chicken in a big bucket. And you get super duper excited.
"Dad!" you say, "Can I have the bucket?"
"Sure," he says, not really phased. He's used to your shenanigans by now. The only way you can truly shock him is to drink the vilest of vile drinks in front of him. Beer. He knows you hate beer. He adds, "You can take the leftover chicken too."
"No I don't want the chicken!" you reply, "Just the bucket!"
Dad shrugs and puts all the chicken in a container, handing you the bucket.
All the way home your mind KNOWS it wants to re-purpose it into something cool, but you've had such a dry spell lately with crafting you can't think WHAT.To tell you the truth, even now it is finished I STILL don't know what to use it for.
I present to you, the Comic Book Bin. Or Bucket. Or something!
Things you'll need
- Old Comic Books or comic book scans. If you don't have any books to scan just google search for some! This blog is super neat!
- KFC bucket. Wipe it out so it's not still chickeny!
- Mod Podge! My beautiful, BEAUTIFUL craft wife Thera sent me a cute care package a little while ago. I t contained TWO jars of Mod Podge, which at the time you couldn't get easily here in Australia. Well now I have it OF COURSE you can buy it at Spotlight. Hhaha. Oh well! Mod Podge is an epic amazing glue varnish. I've used it earlier on my necklaces but I'm so excited to just use it on EVERYTHING.
- Paintbrush. For painting on the glue
- Blank paper or thin card. black or white
- Scissors. Uh. For cutting...
I painted the whole bucket black first, roughly, because I wasn't really sure where I was going with it at first and thought a plain base was best to start with.
Cut them all out!
Modpodge them to the bucket wherever you want them to go. I like placing them at jaunty angles. Paint some modpodge over the top of them too to help them stick!
