Instructions

Step 1

trace the paint can on paper

First, find a flat work surface—one you won’t mind spilling glue on. Lay a piece of paper on this surface and then place a paint can on the paper. Use a marker to trace a circle around the can. 

Step 2

place the bigger metal pieces around the circle

Remove the paint can. Take the bigger metal pieces and place them around the circle. Make sure all the pieces are touching. They will form the base of the wreath. Feel free to put some pieces face up and some face down—the more variety you introduce, the more visually interesting the wreath will be.

Step 3

Adhere the pieces together using a glue gun

Adhere the pieces together using a glue gun. Start with the larger shapes first.

Step 4

Flip over the newly formed circle, then place and glue the remaining metal pieces onto the wreath in any pattern you like.

Flip over the newly formed circle, then place and glue the remaining metal pieces onto the wreath in any pattern you like. Once completed, you can hang the wreath on a wall, place it on a tabletop with a candle in the middle, or find your own creative use for it.
