      What size is the bucket? And can you tell me where to find one at?

        You can get them at flea markets and thrift stores if you look. And I agree, farm supply stores carry them. Also check out estate auctions and Facebook marketplace

      Do you have a photo of the completion. In the bucket and all lit up?

      One thing to keep in mind...be careful when getting things from the yard...Pine cones, for example, may have tiny bugs in them...make sure they are free from any tiny "visitors"....

      Absolutely gorgeous and great idea definitely will use from now on. I love vintage farmhouse decor as I grew up at my Grandparents farm. I love galvanized items and this is a great idea and way to take the worry out of your furry friend going on your tree 😉🎄

      Absolutely love this great job and thank you so much for sharing your inspiring idea.
