Aluminum Can Leaf Wreath

Would you believe that this entire wreath is made out of recycled materials and a little duct tape?  It’s truly a trash-to-treasure project!  Johnnie from Saved By Love Creations used a die cutter to turn aluminum cans into leaves, though you could also use a punch or print out a leaf template to trace and cut by hand.  Even the wreath form came out of the recycle bin!  I love how high-end her results look, especially from such humble materials.  [how to make an aluminum can leaf wreath]
