Here is a cool Mother’s Day gift idea. This gorgeous flower pendant is made from an aluminum can and a copper rivet joining the 3 layers. It really couldn’t be simpler or less expensive. Mom will love it’s uniqueness. You can paint it to suit her tastes and she will have a heartfelt, handmade gift on her day.
Rinse and cut your aluminum can to a sheet that fits your die. Cut two flower shapes and a circle. Emboss the flower shapes and hammer the circle into a dome shape. Paint petals as desired with acrylic paint. If you like the colors on the can, no need to paint. I used Lumiere and sealed with Krylon Clear Coat.
When that dries, connect layers with rivet or eyelet. Punch hole in back most flower petal in for a jump ring and add your choice of chain or cord. That is it.
