Dollar tree foil trays are being used to create rustic farmhouse style wall art. In this tutorial we show you how to make a tin sunflower using throw away cookie sheets or maybe even oven sheets from your local Dollar Tree store.
It is super cheap and fun kids or adults craft activity.
What you need
4 Foil baking trays
Acrylic paints and paint brushes
Of course you will first need to buy these sheets from your local Dollar Tree store. 🙂
For this tutorial you will need some sharp scissors, I do not recommend using your good scissors so either purchase a throwaway pair or some inexpensive kitchen scissors for this job.
For this farmhouse style wall art you will need 4 tin trays. You can, however, make your sunflower larger or smaller (more trays or less trays) Basically you need 10 small petals and 15 large petals and one flower centre.
You can create your own petal template on paper and then cut it out or you can use this template This website also has loads of different petal designs if you would like to try making a different style flower.
Cut out your petals and then begin painting them

This DIY tutorial shows you how to hack a plastic toy shovel into a decorative farmhouse wall art piece.
What you need
To create this item you need to begin by spray painting the plastic shovel with the black paint, You can add a brown for the handle if you wish, I love the Krylon paint range for this as the coverage is amazing.
Once you have spray painted the front and back of your shovel, you need to embellish it. This one is embellished with ribbons and sunflowers.
