The modern metal can candlestick is amazingly simple.
A chic and modern candlestick made of metal cans is surprisingly simple in execution. Such a thing will decorate a table in the garden and on the villa’s terrace, and it will look great on a coffee table in the living room.
Rinse with aluminum cans of beer or cola and dry.
Use a sharp knife or scissors, being extremely careful to cut the edges of the can and make a longitudinal cut. Expand the aluminum sheet and flatten it in any way you like, for example, against the edge of the table or with a rolling pin.
Draw a pattern for the petals on paper and cut.
On the aligned aluminum sheet, outline the contours of the petals, or simply attach a paper template and start cutting the aluminum petals. They will need at least 32 pieces. Prepare more aluminum sheets from cans by repeating the previous steps.
For the base, prepare a cork sheet, cut a circle with a diameter of 15 cm on it and stick an aluminum layer of the same shape to it.
Put the petals in a cardboard box and cover them with paint (gold metallic) from a can. Leave to dry out.
Give the petals a bulge, wrapping the tips around the pencil or brush.
Using a quick-acting glue, stick the petals to the base in several rows. First row…
... and the second, covering the space between the petals of the previous row.
Add a few more rows of petals, creating a beautiful flower with space for a candle in the center.
The candle is ready to decorate any interior! Put in the center a candle with an LED light bulb ...
... or cover a small LED tea light with colored glass. This will make evening gatherings in the country especially pleasant and cozy.
