Recycled Drink Cans Into Amazing Decorative Flowers

Two drink cans are needed to make the flowers. You will also need scissors, marker, pocket knife, and awl.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Mark the can into four equal parts.
  2. Draw a line about 5/8s of an inch up from the bottom of the can.
  3. Cut the top off.
  4. Insert a blade of the pocket knife about 1/2 inch from the top.
  5. Making a slot for the scissors to be inserted, insert the scissors, and cut around the top.
  6. Draw the four flower petals on the can. Be sure the petals fill the quarter panels of the can.
  7. Cut the petals with the scissors, probably staying inside the lines.
  8. After both cans have been cut, bend over the petals to the 5/8s line.
  9. Put one can on top of the other, be sure to offset the petals so it looks like a complete flower.
  10. Press the cans together. Note: You may need to cut a slit between two of the petals on the bottom can to fit easier.
  11. Paint your taste.
