Having realised she had two clean, spare buckets to use, Elaina, who has her own Facebook page dedicated to her crafty designs, soon set about making them into fashionable containers.

She covered the exterior with white paint and glued on paper floral cut-outs, before adding a crochet lace trim on the edges.
