Ive had this old drummers hat for awhile and Ive used it as a vase in the past.  Yes, the wine is half gone!
Im putting it on the hot tub steps for tonight!
I added an old skeleton key, berries, some ribbon and a gift tag I saved from last year. 
I love that this junky bucket will take me from tonight to Christmas Eve and right into New Years Eve. Who knows what Ill use it for next!

The best reason to celebrate is when your 6 year old son is 2 years and 3 months CANCER FREE!  That was all the inspiration I needed to recycle this old drummer's hat into a wine/champagne bucket.

What a wonderful thing to celebrate! Know that we ALL share in your joy! Marie Posted: 9:27 pm on December 21st
