Rusty Canteen Vase

I found this rusty canteen at an abandoned trailer park.  It was filthy, but I saw potential in it becoming something else.  I took it home, cleaned it up and had to remove the material from one side because it was a mess and falling off.  After I wiped down the rust, I sprayed a sealant over it to keep the very cool rust look.  For the side without material, I added a black and white picture I took at a cemetery which I thought was perfect for a canteen.  I added a chain for hanging it and flowers.  This item is now available for purchase in my Etsy shop:  Rusty Canteen Hanger
