I have a relatively unsophisticated collection of hand tools, no power tools to speak of and I'm not exactly overwhelmed with raw material choices around the house. After mulling over a bunch of ideas in my head over the course of a couple of days I decided on making her a dozen roses. I created them using pretty simple household stuff.
(6) Soda Cans
(12) 11" pieces of constuction or strong craft wire (for stems)
Scissors (Don't use your wife's sewing scissors because they will be dull and worthless after cutting through tin cans.)
Ballpoint Pen (Use a pen you don't care about because it will probably not write after this little adventure.)
Sanding Sponge or Sand Paper
Needle Nose Pliers (These will be used to cut and bend wire)
Please Note: Be careful not to cut yourself on the sharp edges of the soda can.
