Festive Foil Wreath

"I'm always on the lookout for interesting -and free- craft materials among my house recyclables. The foil seals from the tops of coffee cans and nut cans provide a wonderful material for crafting. You can bend them and fold them and cut them into a variety of different shapes. For this wreath, I cut flowers from the foil, then shaped and painted them to create this colorful wreath. Hang this wreath on the wall or use it as a candle ring."

  • Scissors
  • Flower and leaf dies and die-cutting machine, butterfly punch

Instructions

  1. Cut flowers, leaves and butterflies with scissors or with a die-cutting machine. Cut butterflies with a punch, die-cutting machine or scissors. The number will depend on the size of the wreath.

  2. Shape the cut-outs and paint with metal paint or alcohol inks.

  3. Cut a circle from cardboard and cut out a circle in the center. This will be the wreath base. For my wreath, the diameter is about 6".

  4. Wrap the wreath with strips of foil. I used a piece that was in the recycle bin. Paint the wreath green.

  5. Hot glue the larger flowers to the base. Layer smaller flowers on top of the large flowers and in between the larger flowers.

  6. Glue buttons into the flowers and glue the leaves under the flowers.

  7. Hang on your wall for a cheery decoration of place a candle holder in the center.
