Rustic Cone Flower Vase

It is hard to believe where this little beauty started out...

An old fashioned reproduction cone caught my
eye at a garage sale...

Not because of its faux vintage look but because of
it's metal shape and the rusty interior...

I purchased it along with a cutting board that was about 
the same size as the cone... and then I attached them.

Two well placed screws was all it took.

Next I painted the whole piece with Annie Sloan 
Chalk Paint® in Country Grey then traced on one of 
my favorite images from The Graphics Fairy.

I used a piece of carbon paper between the image and the
cone then traced over the image with a pencil. The 
transferred image was now on the cone and I painted 
in the image with a Sharpie Paint Stick.  

*Be sure to use an oil based paint stick as any kind of sealer or antiquing over the image may run if the paint stick is water based.

I used an antiquing stain over the piece when the paint was dry.

Then just added flowers!  Faux flowers
look great or add a small jar to the inside to 
hold fresh flowers.
