I hope you will enjoy seeing how I created this Christmas Bucket Planter. I absolutely love taking several discarded items and turning it into something new and useful. Maybe this will give you some ideas!

Perhaps you saw The Secret of my Huge Planter. Yes, this is another bucket/ barrel just like the one I used for that!

I salvaged 4 of these gigantic planters from the neighbor’s trash.

What you Need to make a Large Bucket Planter

  • Barrel planter (These are smaller than mine– mine are 22 inches in diameter by 15 inches tall.)
  • Barrel planter (The largest one in this set is almost as big as mine.)
  • Bushel basket or other large basket (a plastic laundry basket might work?)
  • Spray Paint
  • Frog Tape

I used #FrogTape and masking tape to tape off the black bands.

Then I lightly spray painted the planter.

All painted!

Then I pulled the tape off. It looks great! Thank you #FrogTape!

I salvaged this crab bushel basket from a different neighbor.

I turned the basket upside down.

Then I put the top of a rescued Christmas tree into the top of the upturned basket.

I added some pinecones and garland, and extra branches around the base.

Three salvaged items have turned into one upcycled Basket Christmas tree!

At 40 inches tall, it is still very lightweight because of the upside down basket holding the little tree!

Here are more details about how to make the White Spray Painted Stems.

I decided to put the tree outside on my front step. I can’t wait until I have a front porch– this will make such a cute #winterporchplanter!!
And here is the same tree under several inches of snow!!

It looked so magical in the snow. 🙂
I just love what this tree does for my front step! 😀
