So with Earth Day coming up soon, I have been focusing on one of my favourite craft topics: Recycling!! Or crafting with recycled materials. We recently had a great post all about Uses for Shredded Paper (I had so much fun and pleasure with that) and today, I have a quirky and fun little craft that I would have ADORED as a teenage: ring pull tab bracelets (or soda pop tab bracelets for my American friends). Now I was shown how to make these by Toby from Bird Keep Toby – a fellow YouTuber on the ever so cool NextUp 2016 program at YouTube. Toby knows EVERYTHING there is about Pokemon, so if you or your kids are Pokemon fans, do check out his channel!
Back to the ring pull tab bracelets – they are practically free to make, look fun and are a GREAT gift for friends. Watch out for different coloured ring pulls at Christmas – when they often come in greens and reds. As to the ribbon – I keep all ribbons from gifts etc, so they are recycled too!
Ring Pull Tab Bracelets – Materials
- 20-28 ring pull tabs (or soda pop tabs) depending on size
- A ribbon that fits at least 4 times around your wrist (you can use some string too)
- 2 safety pins (makes life easier but not essential
