D.I.Y. Arizona Green Tea & Monster Can Cuff Bracelet (Recycled Soda Can Jewelry) UPDATED

Hi guys! Today I thought I’d show you how to make these fun bracelets out of soft drink cans. And you can use any can you like but for this video I’m just using an Arizona peach green tea can and a monster can. So I have an older video on how to make these bracelets, but in that one I just used cardboard for the back instead of an actual jewelry cuff, and cardboard can be kinda flimsy, so I thought I’d make a new video for you guys in case you wanted a sturdier, more realistic bracelet. So here I have my empty drink can, and I’m just gonna go ahead and cut it open, and I’m just using a can opener to cut the top off first, because I find that it’s a little bit easier that way. And after you’ve cut the lid off, you can go ahead and start cutting the rest of the can. Just be careful with this part so that you don’t end up cutting your hands on any sharp edges. So if you want you can just wear some gloves. I cut the can straight down the middle and then I went around the bottom. And once you’ve finished cutting the can open, you should be left with something that looks like this. So I bought this blank cuff that I’m going to be glueing the can onto, and it measures about 2 inches wide. So I turned the can over onto the back and used a ruler and a sharpie to mark off a 2 inch section of the can and then I cut it out. But I didn’t want the tin can to cover the entire cuff. I wanted to have some of it peeking through, so I ended up trimming the can down just a little bit more. Next I went ahead and sanded the back of the can just so that it would stick to the cuff a bit better and also to get rid of any sharp edges. Next I brushed some super glue onto the back of the can and carefully placed the can onto the front of the cuff bracelet. I attached some clothespins to the cuff and left them on until the glue dried, just to make sure that the can wouldn’t pop off or anything. And that’s basically it! Once the glue dries, you can remove the clothespins and enjoy your new bracelet! You can leave the cuff the way it is, or you can add some extra rhinestones and embellishments like I did with this one. I used the exact same method with this bracelet – the only difference is I used a monster can this time and I added a few jewels and flowers onto the top. And if you want to make the cuff a little more comfortable, you can glue some suede onto the back, but this is optional. And that’s about all I have for you today! Thank you so much for watching and sticking around! I appreciate you all so much and I hope you have a great day and I will talk to you next week! Bye!
