All Ducked Out

All Ducked Out
Introducing our Spring greeter…she’s All Ducked Out on our front door!

Inspired by bright colors of Spring, I created a welcoming, watering can decoration.

I found a 2-gallon, oval shaped, galvanized watering can.  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 get your front-door All Ducked Out yet this Spring?  I’d love to hear about it.

Thanks for hopping by friends!

    That is just ducky-sweet! Love it! I have been looking for cute ideas for birdhouses and this reminds me of one I saw. Happy Spring to you! 😉

    I really, really love this! I have been trying to think of creative things for my door besides the wreathes I usually hang there. I love this idea, and I’m really jazzed about that paint.
    I’m pinning this!!

    So pretty! I saw something similar on pinterest and fell in love. Your little duck is adorable and super inviting 🙂

    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

    Your arrangement is so darling. I love the watering can and the little duck just makes me think of spring. I can’t wait for some pretty flowers to start popping out here!

    You’re so talented! So cute! I have a cute wooden white bunny on the door and an Easter themed mantle. Trying to decide what to go to after Easter!

    This is darling! I would never have thought to hang a watering can on my door but I love it! Thanks for the inspiration, I found you through My Romantic Home. Warm wishes, Brittany

    So so cute. Love the idea of the watering can.
    Happiest Spring.

    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.

    Renee – this is beautiful, so creative and cheerful – thanks for sharing the step by step instructions too!

    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!
