Outside or in this bucket of sunflowers is a delightful fall display.
The stripes on the side add a nice touch.
Thar she blows! A big rusty paint can. Its a thing of beauty isnt it?
Paper options at craft stores have reached an all time best. I love paper!! This project is a two sheeter.
Spray back of paper with 3M sprayment.
Apply paper to can and smoth out the wrinkles quickly. The glue dries fast!
Measure and cut ribbon to size. Spray with sprayment and apply.
And there you have it.

This old paint can, dug out of the snow was first used for Junk Beautiful, Out door Edition on a winter entryway. Just to show how versatile junk can be I changed it up for fall. You'll have to wait for the book to see how it was used during the snowy season.


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos

I can think of a million things I would like to cover with that. Thanks Sue for another great project idea. Love you, gogo Posted: 6:08 pm on October 11th

Thanks so much. It shouldn't take too much time to rust! The new book comes out on March 31, 2009. I just finished the final edits and I just can't wait. It's really fun! Ypu can check out the cover and pre-order on www.amazon.com.

Have a great day!
