Aluminium Can Necklace
Empty aluminium cans that are often thrown in garbage cans or recycling bins make great jewellery materials for teens or kids. Make a pendant for a necklace with a few simple materials: A soda or drink can with a design you like, a metal disc and a chain. Cut out a circle from the part of the can that you find appealing. Glue the cut-out to the disc.Poke a hole in the metal disc and the aluminium cut-out. String the chain through the hole and you will have a unique necklace.
Bottle Cap Jewelry
Turn old bottle caps into eye-catching jewellery. After you have collected as many bottle caps as you need, put them ridge side down on a cutting board and flatten them with a rubber hammer. When they are flat, poke a hole on two opposite sides of all the caps. You will later link them up, but before that glue paper cut-outs of images in the centres of the caps. Then, link all the caps together with wire.
Young ones can create a vintage-look bracelet with some old buttons. Get a piece of elastic long enough to fit around the teenager's or child's wrist, with about 1/2 inch of fabric overlapping. Next, simply arrange the buttons on the elastic and stitch them into place. When you are done, stitch together the overlapping ends. This project is simple and inexpensive.
