Happy Anniversary Craftster!!!
This will be my first challenge with Craftster, and my second challenge ever. I am
going to upcycle a tin can into a planter/storage container.
Turquoise acrylic paint
Round nose pliers
First take your gesso and some turquoise colored acrylic paint, and mix it together.
Dab it on the can to make a rough texture.
Now take some Mod Podge and a piece of burlap. Paint Mod Podge
around your can where you want your burlap to stick.
Wrap burlap around your can, then apply a layer of Mod Podge all over your
can, including over the burlap. Let dry.
I'm going to embellish my can with some little fabric rosettes, a
wire formed flower, and wire spirals.
First I dabbed some metal patina to the wire formed flower, and
the wire spirals, to give it some color. Then with your hot glue gun start
gluing your rosettes, wire spirals, and wire flower on top of the burlap on your can.
You can use the can for a storage container or a planter.
