DIY Foil Distressed Pails

DIY Foil Distressed Pail by @createoften

I love this time of year when school supplies are stocked in stores! I love the smell of a new crayon box, notebooks, and lined paper! While visiting Target, I found these cute buckets in all colors in the Bulls-eye section - they were $1 each! I knew a bit of distressed foil would give it a fun look!

How to get a distressed foil look:

1) Brush Tacky Glue on to surface of the pail.

2)  Cut a small piece of foil to use at a time. Then, press on to glue with color side up. Remove, and press again. The foil will stick to the pail.

3) Continue the process, randomly pressing the foil on the pail until the pail is finished.

I love how this turned out and I can't wait to try this technique on other surfaces! In the meantime, my office is going to shine!


Use a colored foil for a completely different two-toned look!

  1. Do you have wait until the glue dries to press the foil?
