sunflower stenciled container

Add some Fall style to this galvanized container just in time for the season, then add floral, greenery, or dried stems to complete the arrangement.
Step 1

Tape off the top of the container with painter’s tape leaving a 1" [2.54 cm] rim.

Step 2

Place another row of painter’s tape above and below the wood band.

Step 3

Paint two layers of paint in the centre between the painter’s tape and above the tape around the rim. Carefully remove the tape and let completely dry.
TIP: For best results wait 24 hours before doing the stencil.

Step 4

Place the adhesive stencil over the middle-painted band. Apply a thin coat of white paint with a stencil brush. Do not remove the stencil yet.
TIP: When you stencil over white paint, your final coat is truer to the original colour.

Step 5

Stencil the Gold paint over the white. Remove the stencil once you have a good covering of paint. Let dry.
TIP: If you plan for this arrangement to be seen at any angle, you may want to repeat the stenciling on the opposite side of the container.

Step 6

Cut some floral foam to fit in the bottom of the container to shorten the inside space, so your arrangement stays tall.

Step 7

Fill the container with your floral stems, greenery or dried grasses and set on a mantel or table.
