It is May. The warm weather is bringing thoughts of summer & summer crafting. I love the colors of summer. I love the fruit, sunshine, flowers & all things outdoors. I have been on a watering can kick lately, which was the inspiration for our bright & sunny craft.

Decorate your watering can. You may do this however you like, but this is how we did ours.

Glue green pipe cleaners in place to form the stems & leaves. Glue buttons above the stems to form flower petals.
