I found this cute little watering can at Roberts the other day for 2 bucks. I thought it was cute so I picked it up and headed home to see what I could do to make it even cuter.
First thing I did was find some really cute paper to cover it. I just wanted it to go around the main part and the handles so I found 2 matching papers to add a little contrast and then got to work cutting around all of the little pieces of the can.
Next thing I did was mod podge the paper on. I left the spout alone, thought it had more personality that way. Then I took 3 distress inks (use whichever you think will look best with your paper) and rubbed it first around the edges (I always just use a paper towel) and then cover the rest of the paper, before finishing with a last coat of mod podge. Sorry I don't have a ton of pics of the process, but this was a really simple project. And the finished project...
Stay tuned for part 2 :D
