Today I will tell you how to turn an ordinary watering can into an interesting element of decor.
- Watering can.

- Printout made on a laser printer.
- Putty or relief paste.
- Decoupage glue.

- Medium antique brown.
- Half-matt varnish.
- Grass, dried flowers, sisal.
Degrease the watering can. Cover it with the primer.
Glue the picture with the decoupage glue, dry and varnish.
Apply the mixture of putty and PVA with a palette knife. I added some sisal at this step.
And some grass:
After everything dries, touch the grass with PVA glue on a sponge:
When all is dry, paint the watering can beige, paint the bottom. Leave it to dry and then varnish.
Take the medium antique brown and paint the watering can. Leave to dry for 20-30 minutes.
And wipe all away with a wet cotton cloth to create volume.
The upper part is painted purple and violet:
Apply beige paint on protruding parts, smooth all:
Ans paint the rest parts blue:
Apply metallic bronze or gold paint at the enges:
All is ready! Enjoy the result :)
