My thrift shop up-cycle for today begins with this jug hanging plaque. I think it is a reproduction of an apple cider jug. It has a metal neck and the rest of the jug is covered in a basket type material. The Harvest picture is a decal. I paid $1.
First I peeled off the decal. It took water, fingernails and some elbow grease!
Next I painted the basket with flat black paint.
I brushed on two coats of Annie Sloan in Pure White.
I distressed the piece with sandpaper and added a label with the Mod Podge image transfer method.
I borrowed this label from Be Bound Blog.
I borrowed a lavender tag from The Graphics Fairy.
I added the little lavender tag to the wire with a miniature clothes pin.
Here is my finished project! It has a hook on the back for hanging or it also stands.
