I haven’t had ferns on my front porch for a few years…so when I was finally able to snag a pair of vintage olive buckets, I knew exactly where they were going to land. On the front porch, filled with ferns. 

Olive buckets are basically galvanized buckets with slits all around. They have two handles and were used to harvest and wash olives. They were made to be durable and sturdy, which is why so many of them are still around today.

Olive Bucket Planters Assembly

This was a ridiculously easy thing to do. I picked up two ferns from Lowe’s back in April when I gave my front porch a spring refresh. They were actually hanging baskets so I just cut off the plastic hooks. I put an 8 inch clay pot in each bucket upside down.

Olive bucket planters filled with ferns add a vintage farmhouse element to any front porch. DIY and easy to do!

Last was simply setting the ferns (in their original containers) on top of the clay pots. I very briefly considered actually planting the ferns in the buckets but talked myself out of that pretty fast. This way I can switch out the ferns for something else later in the summer…and into the fall as well.

I really liked the vintage wash tub planters that were here previously so I moved them to our deck. They were added to my vintage container herb garden and blended in beautifully.

My olive bucket planters are not a matching set. They are just about the same height but aren’t exactly the same. They were purchased online but are no longer available. I searched and found some that are reasonably priced and ready to ship. Just in case you want a pair for yourself…
