This was such a fun project to make. The original design is from Simply Crafty SVGs.
This antiqued version of the milk can is fairly easy to replicate and I hope you'll enjoy making one too.
The supply list is pretty basic:
Milk Can SVG
Cardstock (Sea by Bazzill)
acrylic paint (Off White, Black)
Clear Acrylic sealer (optional)
Cut the following pieces for the can:
Can pieces (handles optional)
Bottom panels (the top decorative panel pieces were not used)
Assemble the lid and can as directed in the video. BUT do not put the decorative panels on yet.
Once the can has been assembled, using the foam brush, dry brush some of the off white paint on the sides for some highlights.
Dry brush the bottom decorative panels with the white paint.
Once the paint has dried, crimp each of the decorative panels. Glue the panels to the can. They should fit snugly between the seams.
Add the ring pieces that have also been dry brushed.
If desired, add a label. This was created in SCAL 5 and the "Farm Fresh" was printed and then the label was cut using the print2cut feature of the SCAL software.
Using a small amount of black paint and the corner of a foam brush, create some "rust" areas using the paint on the label. While the paint is still wet, add a little ground cinnamon to a few of the wet areas. Brush some of the excess cinnamon away if desired. Let the paint finish drying.
Repeat the process for the can and lid to add some "rust" as desired. Let the paint dry.
Lightly spray the can and lid with the clear acrylic spray. Let dry.
The finished can stands about 6 inches high. It's perfect for displaying a bouquet of spring flowers or filling with treats for a gift. Or it can stand on its own on a shelf or in the kitchen window. Enjoy!
