Forming and shaping metal flowers to give them dimension is fun, particularly when you do not have to spend a lot of money on expensive shaping tools to do it. A good hammer and a piece of wood works just fine!
Note: You can use Pre-cut metal shapes for the flower or you can create your own using one of Judy's templates.
I always have a lot of scrap lumber left over from my woodworking projects so I have made a number of tools using small leftover pieces.
A scrap of 2×2 pine makes a perfect petal forming tool. If you are not a woodworker, your local lumberyard will have bins full of scraps they will probably give you. If you find a pallet that is being thrown away, you will have more wood to cut up than you know what to do with-probably enough to last you a lifetime!
