My husband has worked in the furniture industry most of our married life. One day he called and said, “Hey there is a vintage olive bucket here, do you want it?” My response was, “YES!” I honestly thought it would be a reproduction. But, nope! It’s the real deal. You can find find one just just like it here.
It has been a staple in my cottage apartment ever since.
One thing I haven’t done with the vintage Olive Bucket is decorate it for Fall. If you have been following me, you KNOW how much I love the color blue. On the exact opposite of the color wheel, my husband loves orange and yellow. He NEVER complains about how or what I decorate with. When, on occasion, I do use orange or yellow, he is thrilled.
If you look closely the lights are gold, brown, amber, orange, and yellow. Ideal for Fall. I found mine a few years ago at a grocery store. You can find similar ones here.
After Carefully placing the string of lights in the bottom of the bucket. It was time for the creative juices to get flowing.
I LOVE how you can see the lights shining through the slits of the bucket, don’t you?
Wrapping the faux berry vine around the edge was a great start. I attached it to the bucket by twisting the wire vine in and out of the handles.
This is where it might get tricky. The wired vines and berries can get tangled. As you can see in the picture above-when I set the wreath in, it pulled down the vine. Take your time and enjoy the process. There is no rush.
Adding leave bunches in various Fall colors were next. Create heights and levels to YOUR liking. The whole idea is to look like you picked the berries and flowers while walking through a field or orchard. So, the bucket has a touch of whimsy and romance.
Sitting along side some of my favorite pumpkin crafts adds to the feel of Fall. You can find tutorials for the book page pumpkin, faux pumpkin centerpiece and pumpkin with shells and driftwood here on my blog, too.
All lit up at night the reflections on the wall brings the bucket to a whole new ambiance.
