Repurposed Art with Cans will Make Spring Flowers

Now, if I see something I like, I almost always have my camera. And, I saw these recycled flowers on a little trip to Chattanooga.

Here is a close-up

Now, these are the very bottoms of cans, and the bottoms have been cut off and snipped all around the edges. There has been a little paint applied around the edges, and a wire is attached to the center. Cool flower it is. I mean, you could actually make them and put them in some sort of vase for Mother's Day.
This was actually on a storefront called Tangerina's in Chattanooga, TN. I mean, talk about recycling; everything in that shop was recycled. Unfortunately, I think the store is not there anymore.

Pretty cool, huh? Like this "live, laugh, and love" made with old handles.
