    Fill the bucket with sand

    You must start by adding wet sand to the plastic buckets with the help of a shovel. Make sure to level out the sand in the bucket so that it compresses and makes it a lot easier to handle. Once you are done filling the sand, place a hand on top of the bucket and turn it upside down to release the sand from it on the sculpture. You can use buckets of different shapes to give the sculpture a unique look.
