Bucket of desired shape and size or what ever you can find that has a large enough lip on the top to hold the wire.
Wire long enough to go completely around a round bucket a little over two times or once around a square bucket. Small wire can be braded to make a sturdy enough bucket wire.
A lid for the bucket.
Plastic hose with an inside diameter close to the same size as the gage of the wire.
Stickers for personalizing your bucket, we recommend reflective stickers, check out BiciConeX.com for a variety of reflective sticker designs.
Computer and internet service(unless some one printed these instructions and forgot to erase this line) Note to people printing these instructions please erase this line so people don’t think they need to find a computer in order to complete the project.
Sand paper, file, grinder, or concrete.
A piece of string.
Step 1: Steps
To approximate how much wire is needed rap the string around the bucket 2 ½ times for round and once for square. Or if you didn’t get the optional string just guess by rolling the bucket along the wire. Remember it is always easier to cut off a little if it is to long than it is to add a little if it is too short.
Cut the wire. Be careful the cut ends are sharp and should be sanded with the sand paper, filed with the file, ground with the grinder or caressed with the concrete to dull the sharp ends.
