String Art Altered Tin Cans


Hello Bloggers!

I love to alter boxes and tin cans. Over last weekend I used a few of the half finished string art to alter a few tin cans.  And since I already had those string arts, I finished these tins cans in no time.  I decided to make a matching Spring card for each tin can.  The tutorial for the spring card is here.





Aren't these gorgeous.  I really enjoying doing string art and that was all I did now.
