Quick and Easy Soda Can Flower Pin by Candace Jedrowicz

There is a richness in the color combination of red and aqua that Candace Jedrowicz swoons over.  That richness is in contrast to this fast and easy technique and that’s why Candace chose to put them together.  The result is a fetching jewelry piece!  Featured on Cool2Craft TV.

Watch Candace’s super easy Soda Can Flower Pin YouTube video tutorial!

Materials:

Aluminum can
Scissors
Hot glue gun – BUT Aleene’s Jewelry and Metal Glue would be the best choice
Permanent markers
Gems
Flower punch (or use scissors to cut your own flower shape)

Use a craft knife to cut the top and bottom of a soda can. Cut open and flatten. Use a punch or cut a flower shape.
Texture the back of the flower. This will cause the petals to bend back .I used a screw driver for texturing, but you can use anything at all that will impress into the soda can.
Turn over and texture the front of the flower to bend the petals forward. The more texture, the better!
Turn the flower over one more time and texture just the tips of the petals so they bend back ever so slightly.
Color your flower with a marker.
Glue a gem in the center.
Glue the pin on the back. Quick and easy!
