New Years gift and giveaway

This Giveaway is now CLOSED!!

The winner is:


Are you headed to someone’s house for a little New Years Eve Celebration?  Why not give your hostess a fun little gift…a sparkly ice bucket and personalized bottle label.  Or, if you are staying in for your own celebration, you can use this for your own party guests.


The challenge for December’s #LowesCreator Creative Network was “Sparkle!”  We were challenged to come up with something that would fit the theme.

2013 gift 2-6

So of course, I immediately thought of Krylon’s Glitter Blast Spray Paint.  I picked up one of these metal buckets in the paint department of Lowe’s which was right by the spray paint.  I picked up the same silvery color as the bucket just to give the bucket a sparkly finish.

Then I picked up some “Sparkling” Cider (since we aren’t drinkers at my house…but you can use your drink of choice) and covered it with a fun and unique New Years Label.


A really simple gift idea and festive addition to your New Years Eve Celebrations.
