I'm a little OBSESSED with these...

Yes...I'm admitting it.  These cuties have become my latest obsession!  My 2 older girls were horrified when I saw some cans lying by the side of the road and stopped to pick them up.  I guess it won't be the last time they are embarrassed by their mother!

Here's a few samples of the latest earrings I've been making.



Have a great Thursday!!

I'd love to see how you make them. They are super cute and what a great way to reuse cans! I bet you look at the designs on cans differently ;)

Emily said...

LOVE THESE!!!

Tammy @ she wears flowers said...

I love your can repurposing!! These earrings are so pretty!

I'm wondering what you did for the edges, too, though.

Jocelyn Christensen said...

That are pretty darn sweet!

Angela said...

Those are cool!! I really like the Star ones you did.

I really need those mountain dew ones.

I would have thought they would be proud that their Mom was a recycler, and someone who cared enough about the environment to clean up someone else's mess! I applaud your courage! Do they forgive you now that you've made some really "Kicking" earrings? I know my granddaughters would love some of those earrings. I'll have to learn how.

Yolanda & Tammy...I file around the edges with a nail file (or sandpaper works too) to dull the edges. I promise, they're not sharp!!

very cute. I wanta make some. I wonder if It's safe to run the metal though my cricut machine? I'm sure it would be bad for the blade. I have some tiny eyelets that I could use, but I'd like to find some about the size you are using. We don't drink can soda at our house so I'll have to see if I can get the hubby to bring some home from his work.
I'm defiantly putting this project on my to-do list. When It happens... I'll share my photos with you.

Those are way cute! Your poor daughters - they'll get over the embarrassment eventually and realize that they have a cool mom. :-)

great way to reuse what is being thrown out! (or thrown in the trash!)

IF it wasn't for my mom emarrasing me when I was younger, I wouldn't have a sence of humor, now!

Those earrings are adorable, I would love to see a tutorial on how you made them.. or atleast how you keep the tin from cutting you!
