Some may ask, after my cheap Walmart olive bucket alert, what the heck do you do with an olive bucket?
Sure, you could tote some olives around in it, but seriously, how many olives can a person eat.
Olive Out uses hers all the time and in this instance she used it to hold some scrumptious hydrangea.
- Turn them upside down and use them for lampshades for hanging lights.
- Use them to store wood beside the fireplace - picture birch logs and a roaring fire.
- Use one in your bathroom to hold toilet paper - picture . . . well, maybe you don't want to picture too much in the bathroom.
- Gosh, just about anything!
Please do me a huge favor. If you want to pin any of the images above, please click through to their blog using the link below each photo. That way the pin will go directly to their blog page and not back to mine. Just makes it easier for people who repin from you to find the original source. Thanks oodles!
But hey, you can always pin this snazzy photo below.

I never ever see these vintage ones in my area. But I could find a Walmart!
I love me some olive buckets...lol...great inspiration. Christine from Little Brags

I wish I could keep mine full of flowers all the time, but it would get awfully expensive. 🙂
Too cute! I saw these for the first time at Gold Rush Days in Oronoco MN last August. I wondered 'what do people want these for?' Guess I was a bit behind the times. I did not buy one and maybe I should have. Duh.
Those are all great ideas for olive buckets. Love the way they look in all those applications! xo Diana
Interesting ideas one and all. I like the Christmas Tree idea. Or as a lampshade.
Still didn't find one, but I do love my galvanized bucket (it just doesn't have those fabulous perforations).

Visiting from Be Inspired where I saw your post on olive buckets at Wally World....will be checking that out....which led me to this post....now I really want one for a Christmas tree!! Following you via Bloglovin'! Love your blog....it is all that I love to do!
Thank you for showing my beloved olive bucket. Now I must have a wee Christmas tree in it. But will the bad bad Gremmie cat let t be? That is the question. xo, olive
Such great ideas! I love Lisa's bucket with the Christmas tree, although I must say that I'd love to live someplace warm enough that I could have an actual olive tree growing in it.
Pam I want one of these! I have now put Walmart on my list of places to stop. I have the perfect plant for it, thanks for the tip.
Great ideas! I use my olive bucket as a trash can in my office. (Office reveal coming soon!)
