Monogrammed Wine Bucket

We have been having such a wonderful Holiday break!  The weather is gorgeous here on the coast and everyone is enjoying the great outdoors.  It has been two weeks of endless social events and I am loving it!

All of the outdoor entertaining and parties we have been attending got me to thinking we needed an acrylic wine bucket.  I do love my champers but nothing is worse than a warm glass of bubbly.  Acrylic is great because it is lightweight, practically unbreakable and welcome at the pool and beach areas.  That being said, it can be a bit boring.  I decided to spruce mine up with a rhinestone monogram.

Finished Wine Bucket

The supplies were all things I had on hand around the house.

    • wine bucket
    • double sided tape
    • rhinestones
    • silicone glue
    • printed monogram letter
    • glitter (optional)

Wine Bucket Supplies

It is important to use silicone glue because of the exposure to water and condensation.

I printed the monogram letter (font is “rapid” size 400) and used double sided tape to adhere it inside the wine bucket.

The rhinestones were then glued to the outside of the bucket with the silicone adhesive.

Glued Rhinestones

To prevent disturbing the rhinestones I waited until the glue was dry before I removed the template.

I am so happy with the way it turned out that I decided to make one for a housewarming gift.  After all, I needed something to carry the champagne in ; ).

With the housewarming gift bucket, I added glitter with glue then placed the rhinestones on top with silicone.

Glittered Wine Bucket

I put the bottle of champagne inside on top of  packing peanuts, added a few re-freezable ice cubes and wrapped the package in cello.


It was such a special gift for special friends and when they realized it was homemade; they were so touched.

Now that we are all ready for summer; let the partying continue!
