I had a couple of old, galvanized buckets lying around and I have been wanting to make them over for a while. My house number is five and I put this bucket on my front porch. I originally had planned to stencil this one and put a mini pine tree in it to add some decoration to my porch for Christmas. Unfortunately, I just never got to it in time for Christmas.
I started by cleaning up this old, galvanized metal bucket.
I love these little boxwood, topiary trees and their little pots, but they were badly root bound and in need of a transplant. I transplanted one of them into a large plastic liner and put it inside the galvanized bucket. I covered the top with moss to hide the liner.
I already had the wreath stencil that I made for this project. I just cut out a new stencil for the No. 5.
The tree might be a little small for this bucket, but it will grow and I can always switch it out because it is not planted directly in the bucket.
