This craft tutorial shows you how to make a farmhouse milk urn decoration using basic supplies from the Dollar Tree store.
What you need
2 round bowls
1 tall canister
Black of brown paint for ageing
Black Paint or milk SVG file
or a paper print out of your design
Start by lining up your pieces and getting a feel for the design layout
I highly recommend using a strong glue like E6000
You will need to make the urn handles, you can use folded cardstock glued into place or pieces of tin cut from a throwaway oven tray.
Glue all the pieces into place and apply a base coat, for this one it has been coated in white paint and layered with grey using a sponge
You can also have a base of grey and add white and grey paint for a faux galvanized look like this.
Once it is dry apply a Milk decal or freehand paint it with black paint.
