I got a little obsessed making these flowers the other day. It’s the colors that makes me in love with these little flowers. It is so easy so make them and I colored them with spray paint (which takes about 1 min to color them). I haven’t decided yet how to hang them or where but they are going to be put up outside. Living in Sweden when most of the year is dark and cold I really love the idea of putting these up on trees, giving our neighborhood some color.
Here is a tutorial for how to make these colorful soda can / pop can flowers.
Soda Cans (MANY, if you get obsessed by them like I did 😉 )
Exacto knife or scissors
1. Cut of the top with either the knife or scissor. Use gloves! These babies are very sharp. I didn’t use gloves for the other 10 or so flowers before I made this tutorial and my fingers are not happy with me. So use gloves, even if you don’t have matching ones like I haha.
2. Cut stripes or petals depending on what kind of flower you want to make.
3. Press down the stripes/petals. I use the small scissor to make small changes like the shape of the ends of the stripes. Bend them a little bit with your hands to get that curved flower look.
4. Use spray paint or any other paint suitable for painting on metal.
Time for some fun painting! I really recommend using spray paint for these flowers. It goes fast, the pain dries fast and it is easy to make beautiful ombre patterns.
