Step 1: Supplies
The things you will need in order to make one of these wallet chains are -
- about 132 to 152 can hinges. It depends on the length of the chain you want to make. You can either go to your local recyling center and ask them if you can get the hinges of their cans or you can look on the floor in the street for them. (View all the pictures for more info)
- 1 Heavy Duty Wire Cutters. You can also use scissors but it will take longer.
- One Key Ring or Two.
Step 2: Starting Off...
-To start off, first cut the bottom section of every hinge. You will have to do this to EVERY hinge.(See First Picture) I am going to label the top hole "Top Hole" and the bottom hole, "Bottom hole"
-After that's done,(See Second Picture) get the key ring and feed the key ring through the top hole of one hinge. (See Third Picture)
-Then keep adding hinges to bottom hole of this single hinge. This is the only single one you will have. (See Fourth Picture)
-After you have added 4 hinges, add 4 more to those bottom 4, and so on.. creating a 4 X 4 pattern.(See Last Picture)
Step 3: Enjoy!
After you have finished weaving all of your hinges, insert one end in your wallet and clip the other end to your pants. Hopefully yours will look like mine. Everyone will be amazed at your patience and creativity.Enjoy...!
