Do you believe me that this is made of tin foil?
Well it is,
and I am going to show you how.
Here's what you need.
All of this stuff is probably laying around your house,
just waiting to be turned into something exciting!
First start off with a pretty good length of foil.
I used a high-tech devise to get a circle.
Really anything can be used to get it round:
a plate, a ball, a drawing of a circle,
or you can just eye it.
I added a few layers of foil,
until it was about 1" thick.
I might have had a little too much fun with picnik!
I then added some crushed paper,
to make it thicker and lighter.
Then added another couple layers of foil.
You have just made a Tin Foil Wreath.
Have fun making your own!
Personalize to what you like.
Here's what I did:
Gather up your materials.
A flower paper punch.
(I actually borrowed my sisters)
(I used these instead of pins,
because I had them on hand,
and they are SUPER cheap)
and a tin foil wreath.
Shape the flowers.
I used another high-tech device here too.
Needle nosed pliers.
(I was using my finger nail, but
after about the first 50,
Add the flowers.
My fingers really hurt after I finished.
Sometimes I actually used a little craft hammer I have
to put in the nails.
(Who knew paper could be so hard to poke a hole in!)
I added a ribbon and bow,
made with hot glue.
If you wanted,
I'm sure you could wrap the wreath in fabric or spray paint it
to cover the silver foil,
but I like the foil shining through.
I think it makes it look fancy,
with the silver shining through.
Plus it matches the silver brad nails!
I'm excited to see what you have done,
post it on the Bandy Canyon Flickr Group.
