Sweet Nothings for the weekend ~ DIY & GIVEAWAY

Mr. E picked up this sweet watering can for me at an estate sale about two months ago.  I need one desperately, but I wanted to make it a little cuter!  I decided to display (and use) on my front porch, but thought it might be fun to make it an address marker too.  Here is this super simple, and super cute DIY.


  • Watering Can
  • Acrylic Paint, in your favorite color
  • Paint Brush
  • white colored pencil
Make sure the surface of the container is clean.  Write your numbers, or letters, with the white colored pencil to use as a guide.  I free handed the numbers, but I am sure you could use a template if you want.

Paint a couple of coats of paint on top of numbers, or letters, and let dry.

Ta-da! You have a new way to mark your house, or porch!

Have a wonderful weekend and spend some time with the dad in your life!!

Stay Sweet,

**PS Week 2 of the Birthday Extravaganza Twenty-Faux Celebration!  It's another one of my favorite things. Plus you can shop online at www.retrovixenkc.com***
