Recycled Soda Can Wall Art

Are you feeling guilty about those cans of soda your family drinks everyday?  Hopefully you're diligent about recycling but why not make something crafty with all that aluminum?  A craft project that's almost unbelievable since it's made out of soda cans and wire hangers.  Oh, and did I mention this is Horchow inspired and costs very little?

These unique looking wall flowers were hand cut, using a freehand flower pattern, shaped with added pieces of coat hangers and soda cans for leaves and stems, all shaped into lovely flowers and painted using acrylic and chalk paints. Then assembled on 9" x 12" canvases using E6000 and hot glue.

 The Horchow photo that inspired me:

Don't you just love recycling?

Take a little time to enjoy


Happy Crafting!
