This Instructable will show you how to make a cool looking metal recycling symbol out of nothing but an old license plate. It only took me about an hour to make and it costed me nothing.

Step 1: Parts and Tools

a license plate

rotary tool
grinding wheels for rotary tool (make sure you have plenty before you start because they break easily)
wire wheel for rotary tool
sharpie marker
Good use of an old license plate. Could do with a paint job, but it gets the idea across.
Dude, waaayy cool. :D Gave you a 4.5! You know, if you change the name to something that makes people wonder about it, they will have a higher chance of clicking on it. I recommend changing this one to: "Upcycled Recycling Awareness Symbol" It catches your attention.
Thanks for the compliment and the idea for a different title. Hopefully the new title will draw more people to look at it.
Awesome! :D
