Directions:
Crush Oreo cookies and set aside. Mix cream cheese, margarine and powdered sugar; set it aside. Mix the milk and instant pudding; combine with the cream cheese mixture. Add the cool whip. Use a sand bucket -- put some of the crushed cookies on the bottom on the sand bucket. Add a layer of the cream mixture on top of the cookie crumbs. Then on top of that layer the rest of the cookie crumbs. Top with a plastic flower. Looks like a potted flower.

Personal Notes:
Another idea for Halloween, I put a layer of crumbs in a new kitty litter pan, then the filling and a layer of cookie crumbs on top. I placed small tootsie rolls in the pudding mixture and added a few gummy worms.
