Altered Watering Can by Jessy Christopher

Hey hey!! It's Jessy in the Pixie House again! Recently I purchased a tiny watering can and I thought it would be so cool to give it a little treatment. Well it can be a special gift to cheer someone up too! And what better way to do it with the "Fall In Love" Oct kit I am left with. Gosh, there are endless possibilities with this kit!

It is pretty simple to alter the watering can. So here's the recipe...

1. First, I punched the Melissa Frances & American Craft patterned papers using 2 different edge punches by EK Success. Applied glue all over the papers and sticked them around the can.

2. Sticked the Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane stickers onto the layered patterned papers.

3. Wrapped the spout with the Sweet Pink Crinkled Ribbon.

4. Lastly, I tied the Sweet Pink Crinkled Ribbon at the handle and added a Dear Lizzy fabric button.

I hope you enjoy this simple altered watering can tutorial!!

Xoxo Jessy
