Hate to throw out the metal disks that come from the ends of frozen juice concentrate "tubes"? They're such a nice heavy-duty metal with no sharp edges. Here are some recycling ideas from our creative ThriftyFun community.

Is there a way to buy frozen juice concentrate lids without buying a ton of juice? I want to use them for crafts. Thank you.

I started using canning jar lids. You can buy just the lids and bands without the jar.

Ask at a day care, or a care home. Some place they use the juice concentrate.

Great Idea, Rustycrystal! I was thinking Magnets. The possibilities are endless! Beads, stamps, stickers, ribbons, lace, buttons, photos, pictures, sequins, anything! : D

We use to use the lids to make nail punch designs and decorate with trimming around the edge for Christmas tree ornaments. Just trace a small design on the lid and using hammer and nail, tap around the design evenly. Add a string for hanging. Designs could be a bell, Christmas tree, snowman, etc., the possibilities are endless.

Using pliers, bend the lids into bell shapes, and hang with pretty ribbon for a nice wind chime.

Save your frozen orange juice can lids through out the year. For something to do with the kids, paint the juice lids and make Christmas ornaments or pretty magnets.

This could either be a cheap Summer craft idea or a rainy day project. Either way, these could be given as gifts, sold at garage sales, (if ornaments, kept for your own Christmas tree.)

Make a Memory game by gluing a pair of pictures to the recessed sides of two lids. Make as many pairs as you think the child can handle. Place them face down in whatever configuration the child wants, turn them over two at a time to find matches. Use themes (animals, letters, numbers, colors, shapes, states and capitols, etc.) depending on the age of the child. You could even introduce children to their wider family by using family photos.

My grandmother found a christmas chime or door ornament (bells) made with those I think. They were bent like a bell; does this sound familiar?

Where can I get templates for frozen juice tops made with a hammer and nails? You pound holes in the top.

Google free printable clip art. You will just have to make sure the designs are small enough to fit on the lids. Also if you see a larger design that you like you could cut the part that you like off and just use that.
