Tree in a Bucket

I loved the idea that Melissa posted at The Inspired Room - putting a tree in a bucket.
I realized I had the perfect ones.
I love the look!
A simple tree (I prefer real but used what I had closest to me today!), some hydrangea blossoms and burlap ribbon.

French bucket available HERE.
New! Burlap 4" wired ribbon available HERE.

Don't forget to visit A Soft Place to Land for some great DIY projects.

Oooooo I love it too! I have a little tree with the base wrapped in burlap that I plunked in a glass hurricane thingy, but this French bucket idea is right up my alley :) Hope you're having a great week Dawn!!!

I so love that bucket. I wished I had thought of that before we put everything on the tree.

Thanks for sharing!

Very pretty! I may finally paint and use some of those old pots I've not been willing to get rid of.

I love it! I did this too with some of my smaller trees. The larger one is on top of a bucket since it would fit in it. Still good results though.

Thank you SO much for your help (and distraction). My panic attack has subsided (for tonight anyway). I'll be a mad woman by tomorrow but then it'll be all done. The DRAMA of it all. haha

Take care. Almost TGIF! ;)

Such a pretty tree and the bucket is perfect! I actually sell these in my shop and I think I have one of the red ones left. I am for sure going to put a tree in it now. Thanks for the idea!

Love your tree! We put our tree in a galvanized wash bucket this year, after seeing it done in Country Living Magazine. I love how it looks! And it doesn't slide around all the time like the tree skirt did. And if we slop water while watering the tree, the excess goes into the bucket! No more tree skirts for me, my tree is in a bucket from now on. :)
Merry Christmas! Beth.
