This is a gallon paint bucket which can be purchased at a hardware store. I then painted it with two coats of gesso to give the paint something to grab onto. The background was painted in and shaded it to show the hills in the background. The trees were done next, beginning with the farthest away and them bringing them closer in. The deer and snowmen were then placed where I wanted them. The trees, deer and snowmen were all decoupage as were the stars and the moon.
