Tips On How To Make Flowers From Tin Cans
Think of how many cans are thrown out each day! Some go to recycling but a lot still goes to landfill. All that metal going to waste. There are many things you can make from old cans including these garden art flowers.
- Pick cans that have thin (easy to cut) metal such as pop, soda, or beer cans.
- Tools: tin snips, protective work gloves, needle-nose pliers (for curling leaves/petals).
- Paint: spray paint or outdoor paint suitable for metals. This project is ideal for using up leftover paints.
- Layers: layer several tin can flowers together to give the effect of petals.
- Punch a hole through the center of the flower to attach flower to wood dowel (stem).
