Christmas Santa Bucket

HO HO HOLY COW!  Can you believe it’s that time of year already?!  We love the giving the goes on during this time of year and, of course, the Christmas decorations!  Here’s an easy DIY Christmas Santa Bucket craft that takes no time to make and cute to boot!

Christmas Santa Bucket

This Santa bucket would be a cute gift idea for a teacher!  You could fill it with their favorite candy and maybe throw in a gift card.   If you’ve seen this bucket before, you’ll know there are a million ways to make it. I was tickled over this glitter duct tape.  What made it so cool is that the glitter doesn’t come off at all!  It comes in a variety of colors, all very pretty too.

For the bucket, I actually used a halloween one I had laying around.  You really could use anything, even a mason jar or metal bucket, or save and clean your vegetable cans and use them!  The black ribbon was $.47 and the fuzzy sticks were $.99.  I found the feather boa in the crafts department (which is kinda fluffy) but you could probably use cotton balls as an alternative.

Supplies and instructions are below and I’ve included a slideshow for the steps.


  • Red Glitter Duct Tape
  • Black Ribbon
  • Silver (or Gold) Fuzzy Stick
  • Feather Boa (or cotton balls)
  • Container
  • Glue gun


  1. Wrap your container of choice in the duct tape.
  2. Wrap your ribbon around the middle of container, cut, and glue.
  3. Glue your feather boa to the top of the container.
  4. Shape your fuzzy stick into square or rectangle, cut, and glue on the black ribbon.
