Get over being sick with this DIY bucket kit - Within the Grove

As many of you know, I’m loving my new role of Kindergarten teacher turned into stay at home mom. But one thing that will always be present in both jobs are germs.  I’ll never forget coming home with the dreaded stomach bug one school year as I ”casually” passed it on to my husband. Miserable, right? Now being a mom to my little one, I’m more proactive than ever with keeping germs away. That’s when the light bulb went off! We’re always creating get-well baskets for loved ones. Those are wonderful but what about all those icky germs?! That’s when I thought I would create a Get Over Being Sick Bucket Kit.

What’s the first thing you do after being sick especially if it’s your whole household?  You frantically clean every surface you can think of to prevent a relapse of the stomach bug.  Help a friend out by gifting them a Get Over Being Sick Bucket Kit with all of the essentials to help them create a germ free environment.  The cute bucket will certainly bring a smile to their face also! Seriously, this is a game changer!

1. Hand-lettered Farmhouse Bucket

This bucket provides a unique way to display the contents of the kit. It also adds a personal touch for the family you are gifting it to! You’ll find the tutorial for this hand-lettered bucket in the post today.

2.  Wipes

Disinfecting wipes are a must for quickly cleaning surfaces.

3. Laundry Detergent

My bedding is the first thing to hit the washer once I’m on the mend.  Plus, have you ever heard anyone complain about clean, fresh smelling sheets?

4. Cleaning Solution

Need to deep scrub to make sure all of the germs are gone? Grab a bottle of homemade cleaning solution from the kit to get the job done!

5. Tissues and Hand Sanitizer

You might feel well enough to clean but the sniffles could still be lingering.  Grab a box of tissues as you make your way around the house.  But certainly don’t keep spreading the germs. Use hand sanitizer when possible.

6. Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber and Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber Refills

Time to get real. You come home with the stomach bug and you’ll be spending more time in the bathroom rather than sleeping the sickness away in bed. When it’s all said and done you’ll need to clean your toilet ASAP.  The Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber and Scotch-Brite® Disposable Scrubber Refills are the bee’s knees. With the Scotch-Brite™ scrubbing power it provides, you’ll never again miss a spot underneath the rim.

This cleaning tool scrubs the germs you’ve been leaving behind in just seconds without you even getting your hands dirty.  Think about it!  It has a built-in bleach cleaner, the scrubbers are disposable after use, refills will never leave you stuck with germs, and the shape will have your toilet rim clean in seconds so you can get back to recovering. Can it get any easier than that?

7. Magazines, Candles, and a Card, Oh My!

After reading the get well card placed in the kit, your friend or family member can kick their feet up, light their new seasonal candle, and get lost in a new magazine. It’s the perfect way to relax after cleaning.

DIY Hand-Lettered Bucket

Supplies to create a hand lettered bucket - Within the Grove

The How-To

Step 1: Find your favorite calligraphy font and type the name of the family. Use this as a reference when writing the name on the bucket.  This certainly helped me!

Step 2: Using the pencil, write the family name on the bucket.  Dive right in! Use the printed family name as your guide. It’ll easily erase if you make a mistake.

Step 3: Trace over the pencil marks with a permanent marker.  Erase any stray marks once you’re done.

Step 4: Now for faking the calligraphy look. You’re going to draw a line to make every down stroke in your writing thicker.  This will create calligraphy styled lettering.
