Check out these cool Recycled Can Flowers spotted on Flickr. There is no tutorial, but it doesn’t look too difficult. I would use aviation snips and cut down the can from the rim to the bottom every inch or so. Round of the tip of each resulting “petal” with the snips and paint away. Looks like they screwed hardware into the center of the can’s bottom and wrapped wire around the hardware part sticking out of the bottom of the can for the stem. Not sure what they used as the flower center. I would paint a jar lid a bright color and glue it on with E6000.
Let us know if you have made these and if you have any tips!
