Make an autumn wreath out of Best Brown and Two Hearted cans

Aluminum cans hold many benefits for beer drinkers, from their ability to go places that glass can’t to keeping out oxygen and light.

Looking for a way to upcycle your Bell’s cans and celebrate the fall?

Then this Upcycled Can Autumn Wreath is for you!

We used an empty twelve pack of 12 oz. Two Hearted cans, two four-packs of Best Brown cans along with an EK tools leaf die cut punch to put together this fun, beer-centric? take on a seasonal wreath!


  • Two Hearted & Best Brown Cans – rinsed and dried
  • Scissors
  • Can opener
  • Fork
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Flat floral and craft ring
  • Large leaf paper punch (we used EK Tools Maple Leaf Large Punch)
  • Ribbon


  • Rinse out your cans with warm, soapy water. 
    Carefully, remove top of can using a can opener. 
    After the top has been removed, use scissors to cut [vertically along the government warning?] down the government warning. 
  • Remove the curved top of the can. 
  • Next, remove the bottom.
  • Use scissors to make clean cuts on all four edges of can to make a rectangle shape. Use caution while cutting the aluminum.
  • Using the leaf paper punch, punch out leaves from your Best Brown and Two Hearted aluminum rectangles. Be careful with sharp edges.
  • After you have punched out your leaves, you can use the edge of a fork to emboss leaf veins before you affix to your craft ring. This will also help the leaves curve in the right direction for your wreath.
  • Tie a ribbon at the top of your craft ring to hang the finished wreath. After tying ribbon, use excess ribbon to create a loop to hang your wreath. 
  • Begin applying leaves to craft ring using a hot glue gun. Apply the leaves in random orientation and layer to build out the shape and add depth. 
  • After your leaves are applied, go through and fan out the edges of the leaves to create a textured look.
  • Hang the wreath, crack open a Best Brown Ale and enjoy!
