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.
