These pretty metal punch lights are easier to create than you might think.  Remember my previous metal punch rooster made from disposable cookie sheets?  Yes, we are using disposable pans again!  This simple project takes no time at all, and the results are so fun!  A pretty decorative light that is just in time for the season!  Want to know how to make it?

For this project I used:

One disposable aluminum buffet pan lid (you can find  them at Party City or any party supply store)
Halloween Night Light Patterns
Knitting needle (for embossing and punching)
E6000 glue (or glue that is meant for metals or glass)
Hot glue
Dollar Store night light

Download the free patterns above and cut them out.

Use the knitting needle to press an outline of the pattern template onto the aluminum sheet.

Cut out your pattern shape along the embossed lines with a pair of scissors.  (Do not use scissors for this project that you are attached to.  The metal will dull them).

Use the knitting need to press the design of the pattern onto the cutout piece of aluminum.

No your pattern is ready for metal punching!

Lay the cut piece of metal onto a towel and use the knitting needle to begin punching along the lines of the pattern.

For the eyes and beak, I punched very closely together and removed the center pieces.

Here is the completed owl!  At this point you want to use your fingers to smooth the piece as best you can.

Add your glass glue along one of the side edges.  Then add a dot of hot glue to the top and bottom of the edge and shape the metal into a cone, overlapping the edges of the two sides.  (The two dots of hot glue will hold it in place until the glass glue dries).

Complete the pumpkin pattern in the same manner as above.

Remove the cover of the night light and replace it with the decorative metal punched cone.

    Hi Suzy 🙂
    Love this project! I was thinking since it’s the Christmas season that it would be cool to make these in that theme. Like “Believe” or even a Christmas tree! I just may have to try that 🙂
    Love your sitcom!
