Someone was giving away a bunch of kitty litter buckets on Freecycle so I was able to get 5 for raised planters. I'm using them for tomatoes, and a couple of herbs. I want a MILLION more. Seriously. I love how they came out.

Tutorial

Clean your buckets carefully, inside and out. Remove any stickers.
Before: Cat Litter Buckets

Use your screwdriver to make holes for drainage in the bottom of the buckets.

Drainage.

Using your spray paint, cover the exterior of  the buckets. I also got the top part of the interior. I didn't waste paint on the areas that would be full of soil. You may need a couple of layers of paint, depending on what time of paint you use. Full disclosure: I used a different brand of spray paint which was a mistake, as usual. I added a link to GOOD plastic spray paint in the supplies. Use the Rustoleum 2x. I have had less issues with it than the other kinds I've tried. I just saw this stuff on sale and made the mistake of picking it up (sigh).

Let dry.

Add your Silhouette designs using 651 or permanent vinyl. This vinyl should stay on in the weather. Possibly better than the paint I used. I used transfer paper to transfer the designs onto my buckets.

I used some UV spray over this to protect it, but I don't think that would be necessary if you used good spray paint to begin with.
