Since Earth Day is approaching I decided to work on things we can make from all these recyclables that lay around the house. I read this post and it got me thinking: what else? what can I cut from aluminum cans to make them more fun. And then it came to me, well kinda. I have the idea but not enough time to truly implement it since there are kids and husbands and pets. So here is the idea:
Take a washed aluminum can and cut the top and bottom off.
Using a paper puncher cut out a shape. The great thing is that these paper punches come in huge variety of shapes and sizes. They also make the edges dull therefore you do not need to worry about getting cut.
We cut out medium sized stars.
I used a pin tag to make holes. Place the stars on a cutting board and push through, that’s it. Then I used a fishing line to tie these pieces together but again the possibilities are endless. You can use a thin rubber band, or fasteners like in earrings.
I think these could make very interesting earrings or a pendant.
This is a pair of earrings that my daughter purchased. With a few different size hole punchers and few jewelry fasteners an hook you could have your favorite soda or beer earrings in a flash.
Again I am very creative but definitely not artistic, meaning my mind can think of things but I have two left hands and things do not look good made by them. So please take this post and play around yourself. If you make something nice please tell me about it or attach a photo. I would love to see it.
