I love to spread a little holiday cheer throughout our neighborhood and what a better way to celebrate summer than with a water fight? Following the same idea as the popular Boo’d-Halloween and Snowed On-Christmas neighborhood gifts; I created a You’ve Been Hit-Summer Water Fight bucket!

Personalizing the bucket and squirt gun were easy to do with my Cricut Explore and Cricut® Brights Vinyl Sampler Pack-Azure. This could easily be recreated with the Cricut Explore One as well! Cricut Design Space is a user-friendly web-based interface that allows you to both upload your own graphics and use their designs. I uploaded my wave graphic and for the others I utilized Cricut Design Space graphics. Once I was ready to, I set my Cricut to Vinyl, loaded and hit GO-easy as that.
Next up I enlisted my daughter’s help to weed the unwanted parts.
Then adhere Cricut Vinyl Transfer Tape, burnish the tape to your item. Peel away the transfer tape at a 45 degree angle slowly and you’re done.
Vinyl is a fun & easy medium that isn’t just for walls. You can accessorize and customize, toys, buckets, walls, media covers, notebooks, or even adhere it to paper! Add printable tag to your bucket of goodies, deliver to your neighbor and watch the summer fun spread throughout your neighborhood.
