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. It is a more personal gift then buying a can and filling it. You can request by e-mailing me (email@example.com) with your own pictures, sayings, etc. whatever you want on the can along with the colors you want me to use. Make it your own creation with me as the instrument to finish it for you. If you want it for a birthday, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc., I have some wonderful ideas for you.
