All Duck-ed Out

...on our front door!


Inspired by bright colors of Spring, I created a welcoming, watering can for our front door.  I found a 2-gallon, oval shaped, galvanized watering can with copper stripes at Home Depot.  I used masking tape to cover the copper and sprayed the can with Rust-Oleum American Accents paint in natural rust.  It's a kit and I simply followed the directions.  After two hours I pulled off the tape and glued some dry floral oasis to the inside of the can.  I tucked a few silk Spring flowers inside and added a little duck and a blue bow to the handle.  On the back of the can I ran a strip of non-skid drawer liner so it won't scratch my door.  It was a snap to make;  mask, spray, fill and hang, on a wreath holder!


Have you had a chance to deck out your front-door yet this Spring?  I'd love to hear about it.


Thanks for hopping by friends!

  5. Your watering can looks great and the little ducky is so cute! I like the blue ribbon too to balance the arrangement. I just put out my fake huge hydrangea wreath which usually goes up in July, because the birds destroyed my spring wreath last year building a nest! I've been watching the robins closely this year. There are perfectly good trees right next to the door! :) Linda

  16. Thanks for sharing those great ideas, Renee! I have not used the spray rust paint but your paint job looks great. That is so clever to actually hang the watering can on the door for something unusual and the tip for sticking the tape on the back is genius. I saw your post over at Metamorphosis Monday blog party. I also did a metal container with flowers for a door (but mine is not as clever as yours). I am right beside you at the party if you would like to see it.

  19. That's so pretty! I took a very lazy approach and made a bouquet of cedar windfall and tied it up with a cheery green and white gingham ribbon - Spring!
