I recently went on a volunteer trip to Jamaica to work at schools in areas with extreme poverty. One of the students at the school made this super-adorable bracelet using only soda can tabs and a shoelace. Unfortunately I don't have step-by-step pictures.

Supplies:

  • soda can tabs
  • 1 shoelace

Steps:

  1. To make the bracelet, you simply weave the shoelace over and under two layers of soda can tabs. Start by pulling one end of the shoelace up through the top hole of a soda tab. Then thread the shoelace up through the bottom hole of the soda tab. Slide this tab to the middle of the shoelace. This is the beginning of the bracelet.
  2. Thread the top shoelace up through the top hole of a second tab (tab B) and then down through the top hole of a third tab (tab C). Thread the bottom shoelace up through the bottom hole of tab B and down through tab C. Tab C will be on the top row (and offset). Continue to weave the tabs together in this fashion until bracelet reaches the desired length.
  3. Take the each of the shoelace ends and draw them back to the beginning of the bracelet and thread them through tab A (this will allow you to tighten the bracelet).

Make a fashion statement with some pop tabs and ribbon!

Items Needed:

Instructions:

1. Take one pop tab and place it on a piece of ribbon that is big enough to surround your wrist.

2. Tie it in a knot at the end, leaving at least 2 inches of ribbon loose.

3. Place another pop tab under the first with the "bottoms" which is the side that would be down on your can of pop) facing each other.

4. Slide the 2nd pop tab slightly to the right. You should see an opening in the two pop tabs that is oval in shape. Feed the ribbon up through that hole.

5. Place another pop tab next to the first pop tab. You should see another oval of space when you look at the 2nd and 3rd pop tabs. Feed the ribbon down through that hole.

6. Keep repeating the "add pop tab, feed ribbon" until you have a long enough string of tabs to encircle your wrist.

7. Tie the loose end of the ribbon in a knot around the last pop tab.

8. Tie the extra ribbon at the ends into a knot so that the bracelet fits your wrist, but can easily be slid on and off.

You can add to this bracelet by stopping pop tabs occasionally and adding a charm or beads to the ribbon. You can also keep the excess ribbon on the ends of the bracelets and add beads for decoration.

This craft is rather difficult and time consuming. It would work wonderfully as a project for a crafter's workshop. Nice project when you are working with teens.
