Okay, I said I would post this tutorial a week ago, so let's get to it. These soda rings go great with soda can bangles and anklets. Go back to that post to check out the tutorial and make your own. (And feel free to stop by Fireflies and Jellybeans on your way out to vote for the Iron Crafter.)
Go to your recycle bin and your scrap pile and grab:
-a soda can
-coordinating or contrasting scraps
You will also need:
-Modge Podge and paintbrush
-a hot glue gun
1) Cut a thin strip from your soda can. (This is way easier than you might think. Poke your scissors into the can and cut around the can.) Once you have the strip cut, cut off any jagged edges.
2) Wrap the can strip around your finger to size it. Make sure you cut the strip so about 1/4 of an inch overlaps.
3) Use your hot glue to form the ring by gluing the overlap. Hold tightly at this spot until glue cools a bit.
5) Use Modge Podge and paint brush to affix fabric to can. With each strip added, paint the Modge Podge on before you wrap the fabric strip on AND paint the Modge Podge over the fabric strip. Keep adding strips this way all the way around covering up the overlapping section. Try to line up the inside overlap seam. Don't worry about the white, gluey Modge Podge look. It will dry clear.
6) Add one more coat of Modge Podge. Let dry.
Enjoy your new jewelry and . . .
