Dollar Tree – Vintage Farmhouse Milk Urn

What you need

Dollar Tree supplies

2 round bowls

1 tall canister

E6000 

White Chalk paint

Black of brown paint for ageing

Black Paint  or milk SVG file  

or a paper print out of your design

Instructions

Start by lining up your pieces and getting a feel for the design layout

I highly recommend using a strong glue like E6000 to secure everything together. Make sure you allow it to dry before painting.

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.

Finish off by adding some rope to enhance the rustic farmhouse look. You can also add raffia or checkered ribbons.
