Decoupage Watering Can and Simple & Sweet Fridays #26

I always wanted to make a project doing decoupage.
 At Walmart I spotted this watering can for $6.00. It was too plain and I thought this would be the perfect thing to try to decoupage for a beginner.
I painted it with a peach acrylic paint.
 The thrift store had this great Mother Goose book with perfect illustrations in it.
I cut out rhymes and characters.
I painted the front and back of the pictures with mod podge.
I love the Mother Goose rhymes. 
It reminds me when my children were little.

I'm giving it as a gift for a baby shower.
Hope she likes it!
