Watering Can

Use a 2" styrofoam ball and trim it to a shape you like. Cover it with coloured Washi paper. As an alternative, you could use plastic caps or little medicine measuring cups and cover them with paper instead. Use a Washi paper covered wire for the handle and pieces of chop sticks for the spout and cover them with Washi paper.
