Bike inner tubes used to be one of those useless items that just ends up in the trash. But now, thanks to people becoming aware of the environment and pollution it is one of the top recycled item.

Up cycling inner tubes into bags and clothing accessories are some ideas. I love doing green projects and really enjoyed making these chic and very trendy jewelry. It's very easy to do and very kid friendly.

Step 1: Materials


Bike inner tube.

Some lids to cut circles


Drop beads with side holes( if you cant find them, no issues. I'll show you how to make them as I couldn't find them)

20 AWG wire

Media sized Bead

Closure ( or you can make your own like this )

<p>Oh...wow... totally a great Idea :)</p>
<p>Thank you so much :-)</p>
