7 Creative Uses for 5 Gallon Buckets

The 5 gallon bucket is a versatile container because it’s roomy and airtight. If you have a 5 gallon bucket, and you’re wondering what to do with it, here are 7 creative ideas:

1. Start a hanging garden

A 5 gallon bucket can be converted to an elevated planter for your garden in a few simple steps. In one notable example, a man used 5 gallon buckets on pulleys to keep tomato plants away from deer. All you’d need is a drill, dirt, your tomato plant, and a string.

2. Nesting boxes for chickens

Did you know that a 5 gallon bucket makes a great home for a chicken? Create a nesting box by carving the lid so that there’s 1/3 left across the bottom, attach the lid, putting the 5 gallon bucket on its side, and fill the bottom with hay. You’ll have a cozy, egg-laying nest ready in no time.

3. Make wine

Using a sterile bucket, a cloth and a fermentation lock, you can make your own wine in a 5 gallon bucket. Best of all, you can make a batch of wine in as little as 2 days. Just be sure to use a sterile bucket with a tight seal on the lid.

4. Baby bathtub

Instead of investing in an expensive baby tub that your child will quickly outgrow, a 5 gallon bucket makes for a good alternative. You can drill holes for drainage, if you’d like to simply use the bucket as a sitting aid, or you can keep the bucket as is and let your little one splash around. As always, do not leave your child unsupervised in the tub or bucket tub.

5. Portable cooler

Add ice and food or drinks, then seal with the lid. You’ll have an instant, insulated cooler ready to bring on your next trip. Open the lid and use the ice-filled bucket as a serving station. You can decorate the outside of the bucket if you choose.

6. Create a cart

If you add a frame and wheels to a 5 gallon bucket, it can become a nifty cart. Did you know that 5 gallon buckets can hold up to 40 pounds? Use your cart for hauling gardening supplies around the lawn, bringing groceries inside, or carrying supplies to the beach.

7. Brew some beer

Use your 5 gallon bucket for some brewskis. Your bucket will act as a fermenter. You just need an airtight lid and an airlock.

These are just a few ways you can use a 5 gallon bucket. You could also use it as storage. How will you use your bucket?
