The stylish way to recycle those soda cans. XD
So I was really bored one day and I decided that soda cans could make some great bracelets and rings. I don't have a picture of the bracelets but I will tell you how to do them, okay? Favorite please?

  • Step 1

    First you're going to find yourself a soda can, the type of soda doesn't matter. I like the ones with bright colors, diet soda cans can look cool too if you want a more understated look. It's whatever you want to do really.

  • Step 2

    Once you have acquired your soda can of choice the next step is to make sure it's nice and dry and empty. Believe me you don't want to be cleaning up soda spills.

  • Step 3

    Now, let's get started, you're going to want to take your can and cut off the top and bottom as neatly as possible leaving and much of the label part left as possible. This is a little tricky but once you do it a few times it will get easier. I suggest using really sharp scissors. I had ones meant to be used in the kitchen. You can stab the can and make a hole and then cut around the rest. Fun if you're trying to get some anger out.

  • Step 4

    Now you should have a skeleton of your can, a hollow cylinder. Cut down this cylinder and flatten out the can, this can take a second. Now you should have something that is sort of rectangular.

  • Step 5

    Then you are going to cut your rectangle thingy into strips. You'll want to make your strips bigger than you actually want your ring to be.

  • Step 6

    Then you will flip your strips over to the metallic-y side and you what you need to do is fold the two sides into the center, make sure you're pretty clean with this, it makes it fit better.

    Step 7

    So now you have something that looks like this. You're almost doneeeee!! xD
    You need to take this strip of can and you will wrap it around your finger. Trim off any excess.
    Now you can simply hot glue your little ring to fit.

    By making a pretty wide strip you get this really cool angular ring but you can also make really thin ones.
