How to make a Camping Light Bucket – Quick and Easy!
To make this camping light bucket, you will need:
- 5 Gallon White Bucket with Lid which you can find here.
- These Submersible LED Lights
- Permanent Adhesive Vinyl – You want to make sure you have permanent vinyl for this project. I recommend this black permanent adhesive vinyl. This variety pack is great as well if you are just getting started building up your vinyl and you want to use a color instead of black.
- Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2 Cutting Machine (or any other cutting machine) and this machine mat for cutting.
- These Weeding Tools for removing the excess vinyl (or something similar)
- This scraper or something similar to adhere and smooth your vinyl to your wooden board.
- Transfer Tape to transfer your design to your chalkboard sign. This is my favorite brand for Transfer Tape

To make this light-up camping bucket, create a new project in Cricut Design Space, upload your SVG File and then prepare your mat to cut.

Adding the Lights to this DIY Camping Bucket
Once you have applied your vinyl, the last step is to add the lights! I recommend using submersible lights. This way you can fill your bucket with water to keep from blowing away. Just place the submersible light in the bottom of the bucket. Or you can use a Velcro strip and Velcro the light to the inside of the lid.
