Fireflies and Jellybeans announced a competition for the Iron Crafter using recyced cans, I knew I must enter.
Lets get started!!
First I took the lids off using a borrowed pampered chef can opener. They take the complete lid off leaving no sharp edges.
Next I make a hole at the top so I could turn it into a necklace.
Then I planned how I wanted to decorate the inside of the lid. I thought of it like I was scrapbooking. Then I put the base paper which was a brown paper with pink dots. I glued it all down with mod podge. I carefully made the hole in my paper to match the lid and re-inserted the nail to keep the hole clear. I put judkins diamond glaze on top and let dry. When it is dry remove the nail and string and bead. If you need instructions on making a necklace check out this previous post for a Necklace Tutorial
