Materials Needed

One wooden fence decoration- purchased at Dollar Tree

Mod Podge

One decorative napkin-purchased one pack at Dollar Tree

Paint- I'm using chalk paint.-White, and Misty pink

One mini watering can decoration-I found this in the gardening section at Dollar Tree

One paint brush


Hot glue


One pencil for tracing

Floral snips

Optional- butterfly sticker

Start off with, applying a layer of white chalk paint onto your picket fence. Using a smaller paint brush you can also apply the white chalk paint to the spaces between the pickets. Set it aside, and allow it to dry.

Take your napkin, and remove the second layer. For this project, you will only want the top layer of your napkin. Once you have done so, take your napkin, and lay it out flat.

Next take your picket fence, and lay it on top of your napkin. Using your pencil begin to trace out each picket.

After you have traced out your pickets, take your scissors, and begin to cut the traced pickets out. Cut each picket out, and set it aside.

Using your mod podge, begin to apply some mod podge over each picket.

Next, take your napkin pieces you had previously cut, and start to add them on top of the mod podge. Using your fingers, gently press them down, and remove any wrinkles, and lines.

Take your mod podge, and apply a thin layer over each napkin piece, and picket. Once you have done this step, you can use a heat gun, or blow dryer to help with the drying. Using a smaller paint brush, take a little mod podge, and go between each picket and apply it to sections that may need it.

After, take your watering can decoration and apply your paint onto it. If you are wanting to keep the original color on the watering can, you can skip this step.

Using your hot glue, apply a small amount onto the back of your watering can decoration, and add it onto the right side of your picket fence.

Next, take your floral, and begin to cut them to size using your floral snips.

Once you have cut your floral, take each piece and glue them onto the left side of your picket fence decoration.

The last step is completely optional, but you can add on a little butterfly sticker onto the corner of your watering can decoration.

Your simple mini picket fence decoration is now complete! Did you enjoy this simple craft? Would you like to see more mod podge crafts? I'd love to hear from you all.

    Cute and lovely. I just threw out my small picket fence yesterday. It was weathered, paint faded, and looked terrible. Now I'm thinking of getting it and see if I bring it back to life. Good share.
