Not Just Another Vase


When displaying flowers and Holiday arrangements here at Hilltop Cabins I am always searching for creative, attractive containers. I believe I have hit the jackpot with this one! It was so simple and the items I used were free or repurposed:

  • Old rusty bait bucket (they come in two parts)
  • Large spaghetti jar
  • string of outdoor lights
  • flowers

For this project I used the inside part of the bait bucket, the remaining outside part looks just like a regular bucket with no lid or holes and can be used to hold kindling beside a fireplace or scented pine cones at your door. Or save it for spring and plant some flowers in it like I did.


Oh, did I mention I found all of these buckets for free!!

To assemble your flower arrangement, place your jar inside the bait bucket and wrap your string of lights (I used led lights I won at a silent auction) making sure that the male end of the plug hangs slightly out the back. Last but not least, fill the jar with water, add flowers and enjoy!
