  • Draw a heart on a piece of paper to fit the size of your bucket.
  • Cut the heart out from plain paper and attach to the front of the bucket using a piece of rolled up tape in the center of the pattern.
  • Hold the bucket with one hand, pressing the sides of the heart pattern down onto the bucket.
  • Use the handle end of a paintbrush to dot on enamel paint around the edge of the paper heart.
  • Once the first set of dots, the initial heart shape, has been created, carefully remove the heart pattern from the bucket.
  • Now using the dotted heart shape as your guide, choose a second color and add a second set of dots inside the first heart.
  • Repeat this process, changing colors for each set of hearts.
  • Allow to dry completely, overnight is best, before using.
