Punched tin, also called pierced tin, is an artisan technique originating in central Europe for creating housewares that are both functional and decorative.What You Need:
Notes: You can make this project more complex by using metal flashing instead of old tin tart pans and by punching holes with hammer and nails. Just be sure you tape the edges so they aren't sharp!
You can make a wonderful candle holder by filling an empty aluminum can with water and freezing it (this makes it easier to punch.) Then, can use a nail and hammer and punch holes into the can. When it's finished, remove the water and set a candle inside.
