I use styrofoam cut to fit the size of the container.

Also, don't forget to put something in the bottom of the container so it doesn't tip over and get top heavy. I've also glued my bucket (or whatever) to a pretty, clear, plastic plate, with hot glue, so it creates a wider base and prevents tipping.

The small, painted clay flowerpots from the Dollar Tree work really well, and Dollar Tree sells a styrofoam insert that fits perfectly into them.
