I appreciate the time you spent making those
beautiful flowers! They are wonderful!
I have some of the homeless guys
that walk by here saving me their large size beer cans.
They go to a homeless center for lunch several blocks away, and stop and tell me how
nice my flowers and 'things' look.
My garden is next to a busy US Hiway-lots of car and walking traffic.

I haven't done can flowers yet, but did cut some can butterflies.
I am working on plastic bottles flowers while watching
tv now.

No way! (LOL!) ...not a beer can! Too pretty! Look great in with your potted plants! TFS! Jeanne S.

RE: beer cans

I love your flowers!! I'm trying my hand at it but now I would like to paint one. What kind of paint did you use? I used E6000 to glue them together and hope it sticks.

RE: beer cans

I have cut 10 or 12 since you posted this.
Thanks for showing us.
Right now I am waiting to see where the hurricane
will go--looks like it is coming right to us.
I will have to go out and take down my bird cages,
lay my totems on the ground, or move them in. I
hope my bottle tree survives!
Wish me luck!

Thanks, Flowers!

RE: beer cans

How do you cut the beer cans? Does your hands get cut up? Do you paint them first before cutting the cans? Those are so pretty!

RE: beer cans

Here is my version of Nanatricia's flower. I used 2- 12 oz cans. Next time I will use 3, I think. I've made many flowers using the bottoms of cans, concave side facing out, but for some reason never thought of using the dome side facing out. Next time I make one, I'll make the fringe a little longer. I spray paint my pieces after cutting them & before assembling them.
