Soda Can Rings!

Soda Can Rings
Here's the ring Sarah made.

We had a great turnout for Crown Town Handmade's most recent Make Out Craft night! About 25 people gathered around Elizabeth of studio-e on 2/24/11 to learn how to make flower rings out of soda cans. Elizabeth had gathered an impressive collection of cans of all colors for everyone to use. We crimped wire, cut petals out of aluminum and learned how to use pliers to get the look that we wanted. Each person's creation was 100% unique!

A few of us headed to Thomas Street Tavern afterwards to chat and admire our new rings!

Are you in the Charlotte area or planning a visit? Make Out Craft Nights occur the last Thursday of every month at 7:30 pm and are free and open to the public.

See this event's hand-drawn flyer here, and be on the lookout for our next collectible flyer.
