Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
Project needs:

-Aluminum can
-Coat hanger
-Cotton
-Cloth
-Pearlized pins
-Large cork
-Jar

Basic needs:

-Hot glue gun
-Pliers with wire cutter
-Paint and paint brush
-Scissors
-Sharpie

Most of the things I found around the house. Coat hangers are amazing for many projects, its always good to have some around the house and any given time. I used aluminum by cutting apart a soda can, another easy way to get metal for projects. I used a bit of a t-shirt that had been thrown in the rag bin, you only need a little bit so you shouldn't need to buy an entire thing of material. 

The pins, corks, and jar were all found at Michaels for a pretty cheap price, although most places should have similar items. 

This is so cute, I can't believe I haven't seen it before! I would make a million of these things, but I know my roommates cats would destroy it :( But it's so pretty!
