Dollar Tree Foil Tray – Sunflower Farmhouse Wall Art

Dollar Tree Foil Tray – Sunflower Farmhouse Wall Art

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
Scissors
Craft glue
Petal pattern

Instructions

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. Start with the base color and then add the shading. Shade your petals by placing the darker shades of yellow around the outside of each petal as shown in the image above.

Once finished glue all the pieces together and hang on a wall.

Sunflowers are a popular flower, often seen in gardens and parks. They are known for their bright yellow petals and distinctive face, which can often be seen in popular culture. But what does the symbolism of sunflowers mean?

The symbolism of sunflowers can vary depending on the culture and region in which they are grown. However, some of the most common ideas around sunflowers include their association with resurrection and renewal.

In some cultures, sunflowers are seen as a symbol of hope. They represent the potential for new beginnings, and remind us that despite difficult times, there is always hope for a brighter future.

Sunflowers are also associated with fertility and new life. They are often grown as a symbol of thanksgiving, or as a way of celebrating new additions to the family.

Whether you’re looking to celebrate the Season of Spring, or simply appreciate the beauty and symbolism of sunflowers, they are a great way to add a little color to your life.

    The image above shows her using chalk paint and that’s what I plan on using. It’s worked the best for me in the past.

  3. I tried making these with acrylic paint and it was very sticky and smeared easily. Would it be better to use chalk paint?
