What tool tree would be complete without the mini homer bucket? Today I’ll show you how to make these miniature bucket ornaments as part of the tool tree ornament collection.
I’m celebrating Christmas in July by sharing all the tutorials for my mini tool tree. Be sure to follow along for all the details.
Once you have all the ornaments made use an inexpensive plastic organizer as a gift box and bonus it also doubles as a storage container.

- clear plastic containers
- Rustoleum orange gloss spray paint
- white acrylic paint & paint brush
- white Sculpey clay
Step 1: Spray the exterior of the plastic containers Rustoleum real orange gloss.
Step 2: Hand paint ‘let’s do this’ on one side. Predrill 2 holes using a 1/8″ bit.
Step 3: Make a large U shape with wire and wrap a small bit of white clay around top of handle. Bake as directed on clay packaging.
Step 4: Insert open ends of wire handle into predrilled holes and bend 1/4″ upwards on interior to keep in place.
The buckets are super cute alone or you could fill them with candy or treats as a favor.

Are you selling your mini Home Depot buckets? I have a friend that buys a new 5 gal bucket every week and thought the ornament would be funny. Thanks.
Yes Susan. I will respond via email. And your friend is too funny!
Do you still sell the mini tool tree collection?
Hi Michelle, thanks for asking. I do not sell the collection. I do have all the tutorials to make the ornaments collected here if you’re interested: https://jaimecostiglio.com/diy-mini-tool-ornaments-collection/
