Faux Punched Tin
I love the look of punched tin. And of course I wanted to go about it in a totally different way, simply because I’m cheap like that. So, rather than pricing out thin sheets of tin for this project, I collected a few disposable aluminum cookie sheets from the Dollar Store. And faux punched tin was born!
A fun way to create the look of punched tin with disposable aluminum cookie sheets.
This project started out as these disposable aluminum cookie sheets! You can find them at most party supply stores for about 80 cents each.
I used a knitting needle to press the design into the sheet of aluminum and then layed it over a towel to punch in the design.
The finished design can be mounted on canvas. You can find the full tutorial and the free rooster pattern on my website.
The finished work of art has the look and feel of real punched tin, costing just pennies to make.
