Our metal crafting starts with a huge disclaimer...DUDE. Supervision is 100% necessary here. Hot glue gun, scissors and aluminum pie tins being cut up...there are sometimes sharp edges. This is one I did with my kids who are 8 and 11 years old. Something to think about.
To get color, we used permanent colored marker. Okay yah again with supervision...especially if you have walls in your house. Most people do have walls.
Feel free to add any bling-age you want. I used the "peel and stick" variety. Craft section of Wal-mart my friends...2$. I already had them here left over from another project, so they were free to me this time.
Mom helped supervise the application of hot glue, for obvious reasons.
For the mirror, I used an old wallet mirror.
For textured leaves, I went with the already exsisting patterns in the casserole dishes.
For an added decorative touch, I let my son use a screwdriver...again...supervision. I have a lot of screws loose already.
For the vine I used a twisted piece of foil. I punched a hole in the top with a paper puncher of and was able to hang it on a nail. Finished project looked like this...
Be creative here...and have fun making some memories.
There you go.
