The heavy list folks in my barony recommended getting used car wash detergent barrels or pickle barrels; both are usually free if you ask for them. They're heavy plastic that can be cut with a jigsaw and are bendable to your form after a mild application of heat. You can then drill holes to attach them to whatever with cording or leather.
