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!
