To make soda can bracelets, you will need:
- Share A Coke Soda Can
- Hot glue or sewing machine
- a plastic Share A Coke Bottle
Cut the top off your soda can. and then cut a long strip of can, that is thinner than the ribbon you want to use. If you are making a child bracelet, one full strip around the can if big enough. If you are making a bracelet for an adult, then you will need to add an extra strip. I just hot glue an extra piece of soda can to make it long enough.
Round the edges of your Coke Can strip. This will make it easier to thread through the ribbon.
For a Ruffled Bracelet:
Slide the entire length of ribbon tube onto your soda can strip, letting it bunch up to get the entire thing on the soda can. Hot glue the ends of the can together and then sew the ends of the tub closed over the can. Move the bunches of ribbon around until it is evenly bunched around the whole bracelet.
For a non-ruffled bracelet with plastic flower:

Ah what a great way to upcycle something. I would have loved those bracelets as a kid.
Oh my goodness! How cute! My daughter just completed a lesson on reusing products at school. We should make these to celebrate.
How cute are these? And I never would have guessed they were made from soda cans! What a fabulous idea!

This is a really fun way to recycle and repurpose! I watched a how-to video on making bracelets with the plastic bottles this morning! Very neat!
That is so cool! I've never seen a craft quite like that before.
