    Watering Can Hanger

    This watering can wood cutout has got to be one of my favorites I’ve made from our wood cutouts! I used several different techniques to get the look I was going for! Some of the techniques I used were faux galvanize metal, chippy paint, water droplets and distressing! You can check out all of our wood cutouts in our shop by clicking the button below. I created this live on our Kristy’s Craft Room Facebook Page. You can watch the crafting video by clicking the button below.
