I used it to serve cold apple cider. You could use the back side of him and write words with chalk of what you're serving.

Alternatively, you could rubber band the extra ribbon on top, closing the top of the bucket and creating a stem. I also wrapped a little ribbon around the stem, added some twine, and hot glued on a couple fake leaves.

I painted Mod Podge onto the bucket and added strips of plaid fabric.

I then put another coat of Mod Podge over the top of all the fabric. I let this dry completely.

I gathered the extra fabric on top and used a rubber band to close the top, and left the excess fabric hanging loosely. I took another piece of the fabric and rolled it up and hot glued it into place as a stem. I found some red ribbon and let that dangle as the vines.
