This is a very simple project. In the very beginning of my miniature making, I made a bucket for my Victorian kitchen from a milk container, just painting it metallic. I used a piece of wire and a bit of a cotton top for handle. This time I wanted some colourful buckets for my modern kitchen. In particular, I wanted an orange bucket like the one I have in my 1:1 kitchen.
I painted them with acrylic paint and used coloured paper clips for handles.
