martha stewart celebration cheers champagne bucket

Craft a chic container for your next celebration! This ‘CHEERS’ Champagne Bucket, designed by Martha Stewart, will add the perfect personalized touch to your next party. A stencil, some daubers and a little paint are all you need to make this simple DIY!
Step 1

Project Notes:

  • Before your start, practice your stenciling technique and check your color by making a sample print on a scrap piece of paper.
  • Have you stenciled before? It’s easy to do once you know the basics. Hey look, here they are:
    • Remove your stencil by peeling it away from its clear backer sheet. Save the backer sheet – you’ll replace the stencil once you’re done.
    • Place the stencil onto your surface. Make sure it’s just where you want it, then press it into place.
    • Pour a small amount of paint onto your paper plate (or paint palette). Load paint sparingly onto your stencil brush, foam pouncer or dauber by dipping its bottom into the paint, then dab off any excess paint.
    • Lightly dab a thin layer of paint onto your surface, until all the stencil’s open areas are covered. Apply a second coat, if you need to.
    • Work one color at a time and paint in all the stencil sections for that color before you move on to the next.
    • Keep going! Apply paint until all of the stencil’s open areas are filled.
    • While the paint’s still wet, carefully peel off the stencil. Wipe off any excess paint and stick the stencil onto its backer sheet again.


First, use your large, flat brush to paint a basecoat of Wedding Cake paint onto your bucket. Let the paint dry completely, then apply a second coat and let that dry, too.

Step 2
Next, dip your large dauber into a puddle of Gold metallic paint and use it to add dots around the bottom half of your bucket. Add more dots near the bottom and fewer as you work upwards toward the middle section. Let the Gold dots dry.
Step 3
Repeat Step 2 to add more Gold dots with your medium and small daubers, until you have as many as you like. Let the paint dry.
Step 4
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 again using the same three daubers and Florentine Gold glitter paint. It’s ok to overlap some of the metallic dots as you’re adding more! Let the glitter paint dry, too.
Step 5

Follow the project notes above to stencil the word ‘CHEERS’ across the middle of the galvanized bucket, above your painted dots. Use a small dauber and Beetle Black paint for this part. Let your paint dry one more time. Beautiful!

TIP: Make sure you wash all your stencils, brushes and tools immediately after using them, before any of the paint that’s on them can dry. Store your clean stencils on the clear backer paper.
