Last year I made a sign with a watering can on it, so I thought I'd make a cut out watering can this time.
I found the shape on line as clip art and blew it up to a size I could cut out and make a sign out of.
I used my jigsaw to cut the shape out of plywood and then stained it and used the vaseline technique which stops the top coat of paint from adhering wherever you put the vaseline.
I top-coated with white paint and then hand painted "Garden" as well as an arrow in black. At the bottom I used Mod Podge to decoupage on a pretty rose from The Graphics Fairy.
This watering can is 15 3/4" wide x 11 3/4" high and available at my For Sale page
This is the sign I made last year and sold a few weeks ago at the Farmers' Market:
