How to Make an Ice Bucket with a Faux Pumpkin
I just love the fall season and hosting friends and family. I want to show you how to make an ice bucket with a faux pumpkin to use for all of your fall celebrations and events.
This pumpkin ice bucket I created last year was so fun to use for parties and events.
My guests really loved it and it added such a special and unusual element to my fall get togethers.
Like this fall celebration….
Or this Thanksgiving dinner…
It’s super easy and inexpensive to make, so let’s get to it.
supplies for an ice bucket with a faux pumpkin
You will need a faux hollow 12″ pumpkin (mine is 12″ tall and about 9 1/2″ wide)
a sharp knife
making your faux pumpkin into an ice bucket
Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the top off your pumpkin.
Make sure you cut where it begins to get wider so you have a large opening.
This should give you enough space to hold several canned or bottled drinks or a couple of wine bottles.
And will be wide enough to serve ice from.
how to use your ice bucket
You can use your pumpkin ice bucket to chill water bottles or any type of canned or bottled drinks.
Or use it to chill a bottle of prosecco or wine.
Or fill it with ice, and add a scoop, to serve ice at your event.
variations for your ice bucket
I used a white faux pumpkin for my ice bucket, but these faux pumpkins are also available in orange if you prefer.
You can use a shorter and rounder pumpkin than mine, just make sure you have about a 9″ opening so it’s wide enough to hold your drinks and ice.
And that’s it! Super simple DIY that will add such a fun addition to all of your fall parties and events.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how to make an ice bucket with a faux pumpkin. I would love to hear if you try it.

Such a cute idea.

Very clever idea for a beverage chiller. I would add an inner liner made from a beverage safe container, like a milk bottle to actually put the ice for beverages in. You don’t know what chemicals might leach out of the faux pumpkin.
