Upcycle: Tin-Can Tree {pendant}





Some time last month I walked out of a store with a 4-pack chosen specifically for the extraordinary can design. The description "brewed with Kaffir lime leaves, Lemongrass and Coriander" didn't hurt. Neither did the "organic" pedigree. So I figured I'd like the beer. But I was smitten with the can. 



Turns out I LOVE the beer. And I'm really happy with my little Earth Day pendant (enter to win it here). If you're interested in making one yourself, follow these basic instructions for working with aluminum cans. Beyond the basics, I simply drew and cut a tree base then positioned the leaves. Not much more I can add!
