I thought that it would be fun to make a bracelet out of the tabs of soda cans. There are fairly simple to make and only take around 30 minutes.

You will need:
Soda pop tabs (I used around 40-50)
4-7 zip ties
Scissors to cut the zip ties

Step 1: Weaving

You are now going to weave the zip ties in an over under fashion (based on the middle bar peice of the pop tabs). Do this until it is long enough to easily wrap around your wrist. (Make sure to leave enough room so that you can slide it on and off)

Step 2: The Second Side

Now you want to repeat step two and make another side to your bracelet. So now you have two.

Step 3: Weaving the Two Sides Together

Now you want to use the zip ties and fasten the two sides together and make one big bracelet. (You want to fasten it in several places). Then you fasten the whole thing in a circle to make the bracelet. Then just cut off all of the excess zip ties and your done.

By the way I would recommend not fastening the zip ties after you put on the bracelet. I would fasten them just big enough to fit over your hand so you can slide it on and off.



If you have any suggestions or questions please comment. Hope you liked my instructible.

Also you might want to check out my second version of the soda pop tab bracelet here. I took some of the advice left in the comments by cheifjudge09. Thanks to him.

Instead of using zip ties to connect them, you can use more tabs to connect the 2 parts together. I would imagine zip ties rubbing your wrist may be uncomfortable.

<p>Thanks for the suggestion! I think I can see where your line of thought is but I think it would be very time consuming and dificult</p>
<p>of course the jewelry contest comes out right after I publish this. :/</p>
