These recycled soda tab bracelets were made from the tabs taken off of soda cans. They couldn’t be easier to put together, and my kids thought they made quite the cool fashion statement. You can choose any color of elastic or tabs to change up the look!
I saw these cool bracelets months ago in a library book, but the instructions were confusing and complicated. And that’s a shame, because after I set out to make them, they really couldn’t be easier to make! Their recycled, metal vibes are a perfect accessory for little boys (and cool little girls too!).
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Soda tabs (about 18 for toddler sized wrists, up to about 20-24 for bigger kids)
- Elastic cord, about 2 feet long, any kind you like (I snagged these these colorful elastic cords
at my local Joann fabric store)–use one or several colors
- Hot glue gun + glue, if you want to seal the finished knot so it isn’t scratchy and doesn’t come undone; OR
- Fabric glue to seal the knot
Time to Put It Together:
And there you have it! Try mixing it up with colored soda tabs, if you can find them. I think I found the red ones from La Croix sparkling water drinks.
If you’ve got a girl who would love one, make her one too using her favorite colors. You could also try out different types of elastic cord to see what kind of effect you get.
Lookin’ good, Squirt!
