Clustered French Flower Market Bucket For A Baby Shower, Gift Or Wedding Reception

The inspiration for this design came from a French hotel ice bucket that I found at a local discount home store.  You could distress and paint your own in shades of whites, pinks, greens or black.  The design looks like a clustered collection of flowers and grapes after an afternoon of shopping at a flower market.  This easy how to do it yourself design is suitable for a girl's baby shower, bridal shower, to give as a gift to a friend, wedding reception centerpiece or to keep for yourself!
