I hope you having a wonderful start of Spring!
I'm excited that my garden has begun to bloom.Yea!
This months project for The Designer Crafts Challenge group was to show off some handmade flowers with items from around the home. So I gathered up a few supplies and had a little fun!
Won't you join Me?
For this project, you will need:
Favorite flower dies that will cut through tin
Assorted nail polishes
Floral wire, buttons and jewelry pliers.
Begin by cutting up your empty soda cans and clean them with a wet cloth.
The can will automatically curl up, so gently, curl the opposite way being careful of sharp edges.
I love to "paint" my nails as much as I love to make art!
Once dry, the nail polish will act as a sealer.
Leave your pieces to dry while you clear your work space for the next step.
Play with your flowers to see which two will pair well. Then find a button that mostly matches the bottom flower. The other two buttons don't matter. You just want to make sure the buttons are larger than the flowers hole.
Be sure to leave room for the flowers to spin.
The combination of the alcohol pens and nail polishes really pick up the outdoor light. Maybe give a couple to a friend to brighten up a office.
Feel free to visit some of the other designers to see what "Spring" inspired creations they have come up with!
