Watering Can out of a Coke Can

Today I made an altered plaque to make an entry to few of the challenges.

I took the plaque which was lying in my house for quite long time and I decided to compliment this MDF plaque with a watering can which I made out of a coke can. I decided to first coat my plaque with chalk paint with blue colour chalk paint and dried it.

 Later I rubbed the whole plaque with paraffin wax and finally my last coat of chalk paint that is a light colour .

I dried this coat and used a steel scrubber to give a distressed look to the plaque .Then decoupaged  with Papericious decoupage paper which I fussy cut using scissors .

 I now decided to alter a coke can into watering can . First I cut it  and gave the shape of a watering can . I now coloured it with a blue chalk paint .

Then stencilled the can with white chalk paint with Studio 490 Stencil.  Later decoupage it with the same Papericious paper using Mod Podge Matt. Later I added few elements and flowers to give it a complete look .Here are the few close ups of  the plaque .

I hope you enjoyed watching the steps as much as I enjoyed creating it .

I am entering my project to the following challenges :
