In honor of Earth Day (April 22nd), we wanted to find a fun upcycling craft project. Upcycling is the process of taking a recyclable item and turning it into something new and fabulous. This soda can jewelry project from Polwig.com fit the bill perfectly!
Upcycled Soda Can Jewelry
What You Need:
aluminum soda can
paper puncher in fun shape
beading wire or fishing line
1. Cut the top and bottom from a washed aluminum can.
2. Use a paper puncher to cut out fun shapes.
3. Place your shapes on a cutting mat. Punch holes using the push-pin.
4. Use beading wire or fishing line to tie pieces together.
You could alternately use jump rings or fasteners to make earrings. Check out these soda can earrings from Crafty Soccer Mom. Too cute!
