"Don't throw away that pretty soda can, it is easy to cut into pieces and make into a heart shaped mosaic with this step by step tutorial. Your supply list includes some wire snippers, scissors, hot glue, hammer, and some escutcheon pins. If you don't have a wood plaque, you can find them by the dozens at Goodwill. Simply paint the plaque in your colors and decorate with paint pens or some pretty washi tape. Makes a cool Mother's Day Gift."

What a unique idea. It doesn't take much in the way of materials, is very easy to put together and it's very cute too. I read the directions and they are well written and very understandable and easy to follow. I think anyone should be able to do it. Thank you.
