This project is so easy. It does however take time, patience and imagination. If you got those, you got this project.
This project is for a flower magnet or ornament, but with the basic steps all the same, I have made animals, faces, suns, you name it.
Get all your stuff and let's get started!

Step 1: Gather Materials

Make sure you have all of your stuff before you begin! Not everything is necessary but can make life easier.

Acrylic paints in color of your choice
Decoupage glue (any glue will work as long as it dries clear)
Twine (for ornament)
Two clean, empty and dry aluminum cans (one will work, but it is cool to experiment with more than one)
Paint brushes
Hot glue gun and extra glue sticks
Sharp scissors (I use ones that I bought at Home Depot. These are used to cut aluminum siding.)
Magnet roll and bottle top (for magnet)
Small shell (for lady bug)
Newspaper or cardboard (protect your stuff)
