An unusual flower ornament to add color and interest to your tree. This surprising red, white, and blue floral beauty is made with recycled silver tone aluminum can tabs. It hangs from a nearly invisible nylon thread and will grace a tree for many years to come.
A craft fair favorite, my can tab flowers are inspired by pop cap creations. This is a double sided flower. I crocheted rescued yarn ends around and gave it a bright center front and back using plastic canvas scraps. Here is proof that recycling really works!
* About 3.5 inches round, 8.89 cm
* Presented in a cellophane bag
* A perfect ‘go green’ gift
My cats go through cases of Friskies keeping me in supply of can tabs. The unwanted yarn ends were diverted from landfill by FabMo, an ecologically minded nonprofit. The plastic canvas is left over from other projects.
Take a flower to a tree-trimming event and share the amazing world of upcycling with family and friends. If you are looking for a unique decoration, this gem will do the trick with eye-catching appeal.
Welcome to my wonderful world of recycling where rescued materials are given a second beautiful life.
Nothing says 'You're Special' better than handmade.
