    You are one clever Chica!
    This is a great DIY! Having that 6 gallon container will save you from refilling that ice bucket every ten minutes
    I also like your idea of inserting the plastic bag in there. I have another idea to add as well. There is stuff in the fabric store that people but to make hot pads. Can’t remember the name. Anyhow in hot pads it keeps you from burning your hand, but you could also get a piece of this fabric and slip into the bucket before you put plastic ice bag in and it can keep your can cool. Keeping the ice from melting too quickly.

      THANK YOU so much, Cheryl! So happy you like it too! 🙂
      You’re idea is fabulous! I will definitely be checking that out! Thanks!

        Hey I remembered the name of the fabric. It’s called insulbrite. People use it to make pot holders , oven mitts and even casserole carriers to keep things warm. I bet if used in your ice bucket it could be used to keep the ice cool so it won’t melt.

  7. Hi Shayna!
    This ice bucket is fabulous… I was just eyeing up some little metal buckets that I picked up at the dollar store thinking about how to change them up. Love how yours turned out – the bigger size will be perfect as an ice/drinks bucket too. I really need to get a silhouette…maybe next week now that I see your cute project too. Great to meet you, I’m a new follower on bloglovin’!

    What a cute idea .. I really need to try. It’s going to be hard since I don’t own a silhouette machine. Quick question, did you also made those mason jars glass holder/tray? The whole thing just screams “outdoor fun” 🙂 Thanks for sharing this with us.

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Grace! I’m glad you like it. If you want, I can sell you your own cut out of the vinyl and stick it in the mail. Just e-mail me. 🙂
      With the mason jar caddy, I actually found it at a thrift store for $1 and painted it white. It’s perfect for so many things!
