Soda Can “Tiles” Bracelet

made by Twelve Crafts Till Christmas

This tutorial tells you how to make these tiles, however I would use elastic in place of the fabric so that I wouldn’t have to bother with the button. Plus, I think it would look better without the button. Note to bleeding finger: the Modge Podge is a step you don’t want to skip. It coats the sharp edges of the soda can so that your jewelry is safe to wear.

About Kat

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
