So you can do that or, if I won this lying on your house you do recommend that you use a metal one not plastic otherwise this it won’t really work out oh you’ve tin tin or metal so you’re gonna take your tin watering can and cover it in lace. So we did a layer along the bottom and then some detailing on the handle as well as the top of the watering can. So you can either use a piece of lace or you can go and buy lace ribbon or, if you have a strip and that’s what we did we had it doesn’t matter whatever lace you like and you’re gonna use a hot glue gun to secure the lease in place, if there’s any spots where the lace is kind of baggy and it’s not tight against the watering can is not gonna work out. Because the lace is acting as a stencil in this case.
So you want it really tight against your can. So that it can make it really clear exactly yeah so you’re gonna just use little dabs of glue to hold it on to the tin can you are gonna take this lace off after so don’t secure it yeah intensely or anything it’s just to hold it in place. Because we want to get a good clean expensive line exactly yeah so after everything secured into place with the little dabs of glue and have your lace on there you’re gonna take it outside and spray-paint it of course with permission from your parents or maybe just your dad’s in this case yeah maybe don’t ask mom yeah this time we use white you could use whatever color you wanted your favorite color your mom’s favorite color and just go spray painted and leave it for a couple of hours to dry just make sure it’s really drying well yeah and then you’re gonna take it out this is the Sun bright yeah you get to take off the lace you’re just gonna kind of peel it off really slowly and you can even try to pick off the dabs of glue. But really they shouldn’t be that noticeable.
Because just using a really small amount and they should come off really easily. Because it is metal this state perfectly yeah another reason we’re not using plastic yeah that might come off no so yeah once you take that off you should have what looks like you painted a really detailed lace design. But totally okay. So we put some flowers in it after it kind of acts as a flowerpot and then, when the flowers die is actually useful as a watering can this is also great, if you did want to just get your mom flowers for Mother’s Day.
But you didn’t want to put them in like a boring old face. So you could make this to be the vase yeah so to go with this we made a Mother’s Day card, and we were trying to go for like a minimalist a Mother’s Day card so this is what we came up with so you’re going to need to get some paper or cardstock card slots better this is a little bit thicker get it in whatever color you want or your mom’s favorite color or like a pattern up to you so what you’re gonna do is fold the card stock in half and cut out a smaller rectangle like square rectangle we think smallest cuter. But you know, if you want to go full size go for it so on see on this particle card you’re going to kind of want to just follow what I’m doing here it’s kind of hard to explain we’re just drawing out some shapes to spell the word mom so it’s gonna be two bees at the top and then two baby Ms at the bottom and then cat cat ear shapes for the Oh huh so just kind of do what I did here yeah and you’re selling the word bomb by cutting out like negative space. So that your card spells the word ball yeah so anywhere that I’ve shaded it’s the way you’re gonna cut out and cut both sides like cut through both sides of the card yeah cept for the middle where we’re going to make a heart so just where it the circle would be for the oh you’re just gonna do a little heart instead and our scissors were pointy enough that we could just do this with going through one side and poking yeah or really small so helps yeah.
But, if your scissors are a little bit bigger they’re not as sharp you can just use an exacto knife on a cutting board and cut out a heart there, and we only did the one side gets the front yes this is important. Because what we did next was take a pencil and kind of draw the outline of the heart that you just cut out so, when you open the card you have a heart on the inside and then we trace that with a sharpie and then use that to create a flower so little heart pills they could draw like four or five part petals around just draw flower shape and and then we just added a little Grove pun cousin the flowers the flowers the flower pot everything we wrote thank you mom for helping me grow into the person I am today hi I will play a word grow grow grow yes they thought you can just write whatever you want inside to Bob yeah.
