Garden Art from Pop Cans

I took pop cans and cut them into a flower. I then spray painted them in brigth fun colors. After the spray pain was done I used acrylic paint to add detail to them. You can find complete tutorial on my blog. #earthday #gardenart #junkart #recycle

    Charming. Are the edges very sharp since they are cut from soda cans?

    Douglas and Gay- The edges are not sharp and I was surprised that I could just use everyday scissors to cut most of it. The bottom needed tin snips or heavy duty kitchen scissors would work as well. I just used regular craft paint and spray paint and

    My five year old granddaughter and I made these the other day. Painting them kept her busy for hours! I was surprised that they were not sharp. We used a hole punch and hung them with jute and they are now decorating the windows. Thanks for the idea.
