Mini Wishing Well Makeover

Published on 11 May 2023 at 22:28

As you probably know, I LOVE NAPKIN ART!!!! 

I have had this old mini wishing well for I don't know how long! I've had it so long that I'm not even sure where I purchased it from. Either from a thrift store or from a garage sale. It's been sitting out in our lean-to for at least a couple of years.

As a matter of fact, I totally forgot I had it until we were cleaning out our garage and lean-to the other day.

Today I decided was the day it needed a makeover!!

I did do part of the makeover during a live, but it was a little bit more complex than I had anticipated and so I ended my live to finish the project.



  • old worn out wishing wellyou could also use a planter 
  • Mod Podge 
  • White Chalk Paint 
  • Black Paint
  • Napkin (my absolute favorite napkin!!!)
  • Self-Adhesive Tile
  • Hot Glue
  • Brushes
  • Sanding block
  1. I painted the bottom of the well and the sides with white chalk paint.
  2. Let dry or use dryer 
  3. Applied MP
  4. Applied napkin to well
  5. I painted the upper side of the roof with white chalk paint (let dry) before adhering a napkin using MP
  6. Coated napkin with MP
  7. I cut the adhesive tile to fit the roof of the well
  8. I painted the tile with white chalk paint (let dry)
  9. I adhered the tile to the top using hot glue
  10. I used black paint on a napkin to gently brush over the raised portion to ensure you could see the design 
  11. I dry brushed the same black paint on the sides of the wishing well


I added a plant for now but may change it to a pretty flower later!

I love how it turned out!!!!!
