Ice buckets are one of those things that we all have but they sit in a cabinet most of the year. Pull them out, I have some ideas.

If your ice bucket has a cover, set it near the sink and you can use it as a counter top composting bin.

An ice bucket makes a great oversize vase for a centerpeice. It's already water tight, so just fill it with water and preservative and arrange your flowers.

For a fancy ice bucket, line the bottom of the icebucket with foil and use it as an oversized candle hurricane. It will give a dramatic glow and a boost to your décor.

If you can't use your ice bucket for ice anymore because it has a leak, repurpose it as a small garbage can for a bathroom.

You could also roll up hand towels and use the ice bucket as a décor item in the bathroom.

I hope these tips give you a few ideas for repurposing your ice buckets. I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
