A THRIFTY woman has revealed how she transformed an empty KFC bucket into a stunning vase with minimal effort.

Taking to the Facebook group DIY on a Budget UK, Elaina Sanches shared the incredible before and after photos of her creation.

She explained that her KFC delivery had come with two spare buckets, and she decided to put one of the clean ones to good use.

Elaina covered the exterior with paint with white paint and used decoupage – a method of decorating with paper cut-outs – to achieve her floral design.

She then used a crochet lace trim on the edges, finishing the pot with pink bow embellishments.

She demonstrated how the pot could be filled with faux flowers or chocolate treats, making the perfect gift.

Captioning her post, Elaina wrote: “Well I had KFC chicken 🐓 last night, 3 bucket come up, and 2 was clean. So mad woman here just thought 🤔I’m gone craft it lol 🦋🌸🦋🌸🦋🌸🦋🌸🌸🌸

“I'm crafter ladies I craft everything 😂 it’s my on idea this one.”

Fellow group members were seriously impressed, praising her handiwork in the comments.

One wrote: “You would never know looks good the sales of KFC going up now lol.”

Agreeing another added: “This is absolutely beautiful and very creative. You could eat KFC every night and next morning craft buckets and sell.”

“Very creative! Who would've known it was a KFC bucket” added a third.
