You can use this guy for a Outside Christmas display to hold pine, cedar, dogwood etc...
This one makes the perfect trash can for your bathroom.

The bucket to transform...

I received these sap buckets from a girlfriend and I knew I could do something with them...well here is the results. I used pretty napkins (you must take the napkins apart and only use the first layer) then I Mod podged the front and spray painted to make it look like I painted the decals myself. The whole project only took about 20 minutes...my type of project!!! I gave the snowflake one back to my girlfriend and the rose one to my Mother...:)

Pattern or design used: My own design
