If you like the look of punched tin ornaments, but think they're too much work, try punched aluminum.

  2. Ad

  3. Tape an image that you like to the aluminum circle and tape the circle to a piece of Styrofoam.
  4. Poke holes following the image with an icepick or barbecue skewer.
  5. When you're done, poke a larger hole at the top for hanging and peel the paper off.
  6. You're left with a pretty punched aluminum ornament!

This is so nice. I saved all the lids from cat food that came in aluminum cans back when I had a cat. Now, I know what to do with them. But I wont limit myself to just Christmas designs. This is one very versatile application.
