Upcycling

Shopping around on Etsy and I got to thinking about other creative uses for bottle caps and aluminum cans and thus another treasury collection came about. There was a ton of really great stuff!

So, I’ve already decided what I’m going to be for Halloween this year and have moved on to the costume preparation. This afternoon I was perusing Etsy to see if there were any accessories I might use to spice up my costume.. Specifically, I was looking for leather bracelets.

I found lots of great ones, and eventually picked up a few from this shop – pinkyourlimb (not only are they great for my costume, they have great versatility – I can wear them for more than just Halloween)… but in my searching,  I came across these bracelets from the Etsy shop of kylepowers13:

What a great use of bottle caps! That got me thinking about other creative uses for bottle caps and aluminum cans and, before I knew it, I was assembling another collection. This time the focus was on reused and upcycled aluminum cans. I was really surprised by the diversity in the creations. There was a ton of really great stuff!

Check it out!

Amazing!
