Aluminum Flower Workshop

February 17 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Learn to make a wreath-sized flower out of repurposed aluminum cans!

Oh, the possibilities of reuse! In this workshop, you’ll learn to take aluminum cans from your favorite drinks and turn them into a wreath-sized flower to put in your garden, on your door, or anywhere inside or out!

Who may participate?

• Adults

• Ages 14-17 with adult partner

This workshop is fun for family members to do together, but keep in mind that some hand strength is needed to cut & staple the aluminum.

What to bring?

• 12-20 empty & clean aluminum cans. More cans = “fluffier” flower!

Recommended to bring but not required –

• A pair of pointed utility scissors or jewelers shears (not something you hope to cut fabric with later!) *** we will have some to share, but may not have enough for everyone depending on attendance

• Close-fitting work/garden gloves for protection against sharp edges (big & clunky gloves will be harder to work with)

• Utility stapler to attach petals to wood base *** we will have some to share, but these staplers can be hard on the hands, so feel free to bring any easy-squeeze staplers you may have
