There are 3 ways to make your home look ram-shackled.  Christmas lights hanging from the rafters in spring.  Overgrown and neglected yard and soda cans piled on the front porch.  Mike grooms the yard to perfection.  I handled the Christmas lights by not putting any up in the first place.  For those soda cans…this DIY wreath will camouflage the soda cans on the front porch.

Cutting and Shaping

  1.  Cut and flatten soda cans using these steps from autumn leaves wreath.

2.  Lay flower drawings over the flatten metal and using pencil make flower outlines.  Cut out the flowers.  Then using the pencil draw vein lines.  This makes the soft metal form into 3d flower shapes.

3.  Cut out leaves and draw veins.  The shapes of the leaves are basic and random.

4.  Spray both sides using the chalked-based paint.  Covers the soda labels too!

5.  Paint the flowers and leaves with craft paints.

Aging

6.  Add a drop or two of alcohol ink to the flowers and leaves.  Rub to add a little age to the flowers.  This step can be skipped if you wish.  I just like the aging.  Plus the ink removes the paint in areas to reveal the metal.

Arranging

7.  Use the awl or a nail to press small holes into the center or each flower.  Cut small pieces of twine.  Tie a knot in one end and thread the other end into a small flower, then into a larger flower.

8.  I found a square frame at the dollar store.  I removed the glass and backing.  Then firing up the hot glue gun I started arranging the metal flowers around the frame.  Then I stuck in leaves here and there.

I did have some leftover flowers and had two DIY projects collide to make this unique wreath swag.

      If you have ever seen one, you know how to make an insane metal flower wreath this weekend. I love it because every time I see it, I just have to picture a giant metal wreath on a tree in the front yard with all kinds of wildflowers growing all over it. There are so many great options for wreaths that you can easily find one that fits your style. The wildflowers that you get to decorate your wreath with are only the icing on the cake, actually. To really top off your wreath you can take the wildflowers and stuff them into little vases or boxes and place them all over the front of your house. You will also be able to put your name on each wreath as well as your address. This is so much easier than making a regular wreath; you can spend less time making it and more time enjoying the flowers while it is decorating your home.

      What a beautiful wreath! Don’t think I’d have the patience to do one, but wow sure do like yours!

      Just this morning I was cutting up soda cans into butterflies and thought that I should make a couple of flowers too! I’m just now seeing this wonderful post tonight, and wish I could UNcut the cans and use your design instead!!! I remember that I LOVED your autumn leaf wreath, and so it would only be natural to LOVE your Spring flower wreath as well! Bravo Jeanette, and thank you!
      Glad you are all set up with a new website host. That must have been a bit stressful!
      Happy Easter,
      Andi

        Andi, I would love to see your butterflies!! I should have added butterflies to my flowers. This is like the chocolate in the peanut butter commercial. Lol!
