It took a while to collect all these can lids because a lot of the tin goods we buy have pull tabs. I used green bean cans for the smaller flowers and whole tomato cans for the large flowers. JoAnn’s Fabrics had the cutest collection of bright plastic buttons that I doubled up for the center of each flower.
I used a combination of spray paint, acrylic paint, nail polish and paint pens to decorate the flowers.
I used the large tin can lids cut in four sections to make the leaves and “painted” them with green nail polish and a green paint pen.
I ran colored wire through the button holes and used a dab of hot glue to hold the twisted wire in place.
I recommend using a glue like E6000 to attach the leaves because that is water resistant. Glue each leave next to the intersection of the flowers.
Doesn’t it get you in the mood for Spring?
