This is a really well loved DIY project with over 2M views. This is a super cool vintage technique that I couldn’t wait to delve into! I think you’ll be quite fascinated when you see how she does this.
I am amazed at the versatility of this project and all of the things you can make using this method. You can use all kinds of things for making impressions in the aluminum foil, as she shows you in her tutorial. It’s so fascinating!
This is such an easy and quick thing to do. She puts the scrunched up aluminum foil over a box, but I’ve seen people do picture frames with this same technique. They make awesome gifts for people and they are quite impressive.
I’ve seen people on Pinterest make designs with hot glue and put the aluminum foil over it. Some of them used black shoe polish, rather than acrylic paint…just another option.
You can virtually make impressions of anything. You can use lace, rope, buttons, corrugated cardboard and many other items. All you need to do is use your imagination! I love projects like this. It’s such a great way to let your creative juices flow.
Watch how My Life does this in her step by step tutorial so you can get started doing this fun project!
