Housewarming Bucket DIY

I attended a house warming party over the weekend and while I typically just bring a bottle of wine or liquor, I wanted to do something a bit more creative this time. I came across this Pin from Martha Stewart for making a housewarming bucket.

I had problems finding a standard silver-colored utility bucket, but found a prettier tin one at Target that was a smaller though. I filled the contents with some fun, yet useful items - a sponge, extension cord, Goo Be Gone, grill lighter, post-its, shopping list and tape.
I then used some green chalkboard paint for the first time and painted a square on the front of the bucket. I applied two coats and wrote "Welcome Home" with chalk.
It was a fun project that was easy enough to do and my gift was definitely unique and the only one of it's kind there, bonus!
