1. Holiday Wreath Add-on
Do you already have a wreath, but it could use some festive flare? Doll up your dull wreath with décor made from aluminum.
More commonly used for construction, aluminum flashing is a lesser known crafting option. You can bend it, shape it, cut it with scissors AND it’s rust proof.
If you don’t have any extra left over from a recent home improvement project, you can buy it by the roll in small DIY quantities at your local home improvement store – or perhaps an aluminum can from your recycling bin would make a suitable substitute.
This wreath has holly and poinsettias made from flashing and painted cedar balls used for berries. Make this wreath
