Aluminum Can Flowers
This is my new obsession. I used the design from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYdC8sjjkRA. I'm experimenting on slight variations. I am thinking of leaving one side just the silver inside of the can (this would be the back side) and painting the other side the petals like yellow or pink, etc. and the center a separate color. Then glue a stick on the back side to stick in the ground. I cut three circles from one can, five petals from a second can and five petals from a third can. I then glue five petals to one side of the circle. Let that dry. Turn it over and glue the other five petals to the other side, staggering them of course. Then glue the silver side up,another circle to the silver side (back side). Paint the "front side" whatever colors you want the petals. Paint the remaining the circle the color you want to eye, then glue it color side up to the front. Glue the stick and you're done. When I have one completed, I will post a photo.
