Soda Can Mosaic Heart Plaque
"Don't throw away that pretty soda can, it is easy to cut into pieces and make into a heart shaped mosaic with this step by step tutorial. Your supply list includes some wire snippers, scissors, hot glue, hammer, and some escutcheon pins. If you don't have a wood plaque, you can find them by the dozens at Goodwill. Simply paint the plaque in your colors and decorate with paint pens or some pretty washi tape. Makes a cool Mother's Day Gift."
