Finally, spring weather today...........

Yes, we finally got some spring weather today!   We are not out of the woods yet though, it is suppose to freeze next week.  Of course it is, this is Oklahoma.  We will probably skip spring all together and go straight to 100 degree summer!!! 

With spring here (I hope it stays) I really wanted to work on a milk can my friend and I got last  summer.  We like to go "junking" together.   That's what we call it anyway.  She has several of these cans.  I got one, not really know what I would do with it.  I had to do something with it, It just took me a while to figure it out.  Here is a sneak peek.  Keep reading to see what the final project turned out like.

I started first by spray painting it black.  After that I used my favorite craft tool, (I'm sure you haven't heard that before) my silhouette cameo to cut out a commercial vector from Peppermint Creative.  It's called Elegant Welcome word art

I couldn't decide on what to do after.  I didn't know if I wanted to put a dry flower arrangement or a live plant in it.  My friend, Teresa, does beautiful arrangements and did one in hers.  I just couldn't make up my mind (that's nothing new) so I decided to go the cheap way with the ivy.  Oh and the ribbon, yeah that took me forever to decide too!!!!  I hope you like the finished product.  It's sitting on my front porch.  My husband even said he liked it.
