How to Create the Look of Metal with Kitchen Foil

By:

Go green and use household items for all of your favorite projects. Crafty wall decor like this one from Heidi Borchers can add a touch of whimsy to the look of your space. Learn how to create the look of metal with kitchen foil - it's an easy way to save big on supplies!

Start with two cardboard butterflies (they can come from a template or you can sketch some out and cut them with a scissors). Apply Aleene's Tacky Glue along the outer edge of the wings and lay a candle wick in the wet glue to create a pattern. You can also add in rhinestones of all shapes, sizes and colors. Cut a six-inch piece of aluminum foil and and begin to crinkle it (don't roll it into a ball). Lay the foil flat on a table and place the butterfly on top. Cover the butterfly in glue and place it face-down on the foil. Cut away the excess and paint over the foil. You can create an antique look by brushing the paint off with a paper towel. Don't forget to add wire for the antennae!
