Aluminum foil art!!!


Aluminium Foil Art

This beautiful piece of art was my Mother’s Day gift from my sweet Lilly Jane.  I couldn’t believe this amazing gift that she created all by herself!  I grabbed  her up, spun her around, and begged her to teach me how to make one!!!  This isn’t the first time I have begged my child to teach me something crafty.  Remember when she got off the bus carrying these awesome paper stars!?!?!  I think I made 30 that afternoon!


Aluminium Foil ArtYou too can make this very cool, very easy aluminum foil art project.  Grab an old frame that has a glass front.  Take the glass out and line the inside with crumbled up aluminum foil.

Grab your sharpies!!  First use your black sharpie to make lots of different shapes on the glass.

Next use all your favorite color sharpies to fill in the shapes.???????????????????????????????

Oh yeah you know it!!!  I make her wear this shirt all the time!

???????????????????????????????Once you are done filling in all the shapes, put the glass back in the frame over the aluminium foil.

    I love this!! You have such a sweet and talented Lilly! I have seen this done on kid’s craft paper (the cheap stuff that comes in rolls) too….you use sharpies and hang it in a window….the sun shines through and it looks great! Love that you and Lilly are crafting together. :)

    P.S. I am totally getting that shirt in every color for my Lilly….I figure I have about 3 good years left before she thinks I am uncool and makes me walk behind her at the mall.

      Oh my gosh Cally!!! You totally cracked me up with the mall comment! I’m already getting a little of that from her!!! She always tells me not to be soooo loud when we are in public! I totally embarrass her, when did that happen?!?! They grow up tooooooooooo fast!!
      Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
      Lots of love
