DIY Starburst Can Flowers

What a quick and simple way to upcycle aluminum cans. These starburst can flowers are perfect for fun and funky fence art, to adorn a letterbox, or to decorate the side of a shed.
You'll need two aluminium cans per flower.
Using a craft knife cut the top off the can. (Remember safety rules!)
Trim with scissors to even.
Cut strips and fold them down.
This creates the starburst effect.
Trim the starburst tips to a point.
Do the same with the second can. But cut five thick strips. Shape into petals and fold down.
Slot into the starburst can flower.
Bolt or nail onto the shed, fence or letterbox. Visit the blog for the full tutorial -
