Here is some fun I had with some old plastic buckets.  I painted the Santa face on with regular acrylic paints, sealed them really well with polyurethane.  Drilled 3 holes in the tops of the buckets and used a tomato cage for the 'hat'.  Wrapped tinsel and lights.  On the bigger bucket, I just sit it in a pre-made wreath.  The smaller buckets I wrapped more tinsel around the bottom.  Oh, and added a light bulb inside with a lamp kit so they light up.  When you use a red light bulb, you get a flesh color on the face!
