  • How to make a recycled model. Diy Recycled Metal Flower - Step 1
    Step 1

    Collect empty soft drink cans and clean the inside to get rid of the stickiness. I made 1 flower out of 1 can. Used x-acto knife to make a small cut right below the top of the can. Then, use scissors to cut off the top. Now, cut straight towards the bottom. And now, simply cut off the bottom part.

    Rub the can on the edge of a table to flatten it. Now you have a metal sheet!

    Place the templates on the flattened can and trace around the edges of the template petals. Use scissors to cut the petals out. You will have: 3 single petals, 1 large 3-petaled flower, 2 small 3-petaled flowers and a small 5-petaled flower.

    Use an awl to make small holes on the cutout petals and flower (as you can see in the last picture of this step). Place the cutout petals and flowers on a wooden board, place the awl right on the spot (for the hole) and hammer the awl once or twice to make the hole. The hole should be appropriate for the bolt to fit in.
