trendy chic refashion week! day #2 the ruffled soda can ring


this is the beautiful ring that i made from recycled soda cans!  the soda can i made this one out of was A&W cream soda. it was really easy to make and it didn't take that long at all! i usually don't wear trash and try to avoid it at all cost, but i think this is too cute to pass up! haha.  i LOVE the ruffle design it makes!

i also though that it would be cute to spray paint it but hat would take away from the recycled look of it but i think it would be a good idea if you were going for more of a put together girly look...anyways here is the tutorial! (i forgot to number them so they just go in order from left to right)

1. you will need: a hot glue gun, scissors, and soda cans

2. first you will need to wash out your soda cans because nobody likes sticky fingers! then cut out nine circles about the size of a dime.

3. then you will fold them in half twice to make these pie shapes!  when you fold them they get squashed, so just open them up with the tip of your scissors.

4. now you will make the actual ring part!  to make it so you don't cut yourself cause tin cans are kinda sharp, i folded bot edges in and then i folded it in half so that it had nice curved edges!  then i hot glued the ends together.  the last and final step it to hot glue your ruffle flower to your ring! tada!  now you have a trashtastic piece of jewelry!


  1. Very cute and creative idea!

  2. What a neat idea! Thanks for the inspiration

  3. So cute and I love the idea of reusing soda cans! Awesome!!
