Aluminum Flowers

I had been trying to think of something to make into a wreath for my front door. Then I saw the video by MeAshie and a tutorial by Diane Gilleland and knew the flowers would be perfect.  So I gathered my supplies, got some new tools and began.  It was fun creating the different color/flower combinations





and challenging trying to make a variety of them and place them on the wreath.


 It turned out even better than I thought. 





Can you see the callapitters my mom made?



Supplies Used:
Various Aluminum Pop Cans
2 1/4" Scallop Punch
2 7/8" Scallop Punch
Assorted Flower Punches
Various Cuttlebug Folders
Plastic Beads
Metal Brads
Wire

  3. Diane sent me a link to share your amazing flower wreath!

    Besides the fact that it turned out beautiful, I appreciate the time and dedication it took to complete this project. Not just something thrown together in a crafty afternoon.

    The other thing i love about it is that you have truly created an artful object from materials you have recycled - something that will not be thrown away.

    Sadly the fate of so many "recycled" projects is to wind up in the land fill anyway. So much "recycle/reuse craft involves nothing more than a short side trip to the craft room and then to the trash.

    You have inspired me to add a few flowers to my butterfly wreath this year! A few = like maybe three! :-)

    Thank you for sharing with all of us.
