Now I am seriously addicted to diet coke. So reducing is cutting down to 2 per day.
I save the cans to recycle, but found another way to reuse the cans make into ornaments for my outdoor holiday tree.
And I can get a new pair of scissors, some cool glitter spray and a trip to the art/craft store too!
Step 1: Ingredients
aluminum can: drink the beverage, rinse out the leftover drops and turn upside down to dry. Guess this works for beer cans, and the tall ones will give you a lot more can. But I'll stick to the coke cans.
scissors-- this will ruin your good sewing scissors, so use the old ones or the ones you want to replace (any excuse to get into the fabric shop or art supply store ) or borrow the poultry/utility scissors from the kitchen drawer and sneak it back before anyone sees you doing this. The chicken won't tell.
Krylon spray primer or opaque paint for the "words" side of the can
fishing line or decorative cord-- so you can hang from the tree
Krylon varnish or clear coat
In my craft room/studio/junk room I've got other stuff that I added to the ornament...
Modge podge or some other kind of sealant/glue
wrapping paper/old holiday cards
buttons, ribbon, crafting notions
Krylon Glitter spray
permanent markers (metallic colors are my favorite)
Krylon Glowz spray(OK...so I'm planning on submitting to the contest so I'm using several Krylon products as a shameless promotion ploy)
