You can click on the photos to enlarge. I bought the vintage Santa and elf on Etsy, the deer on Amazon and the tree at Hobby Lobby.
To decorate the top of the bucket, I glued on some pine branches then a layer of silver garland above that. I filled the top base of the bucket with styrofoam then covered the foam with glue and glitter for a snowy effect, but then I tried to fill the top as much as I could for a really filled-in effect so you can't really see the snow.
I'll be making a lot more of these for my sale to raise money for our humane society. The sale will be in the late spring and again possibly for a Christmas in July sale. I hope to see a lot of local friends there.
Sale dates will be posted on my blog and Facebook page.
