Burlap Watering Can

I was out thrifting & found this watering can that needed a little updating.  See what you think...

Burlap Watering Can

What you will need:
Watering can or container
Spray Paint

This what the watering can looked like to begin with:

First, spray the watering can whatever color you like.  I just used Zinsser primer.

While you are waiting for the paint to dry, put your stencil on the the burlap and paint.

After the paint has dried, peel up the stencil and repeat for the other side of the can.

I frayed my burlap a little, by pulling off some of the threads on each side.

Then glue the burlap onto the watering can & it's done!

I added a few nylon & burlap flowers I made - maybe I will make a tutorial post on those in the future.

Thanks for stopping by!
