How mundane is this thing...



What the heck can you do with it after all the soda cans are gone?

Any thoughts?

This has had me giggling for a good five minutes already.   Grin

I wonder if you cut it just right if you could add it to yarns or use it to sew something random?

I once made a hammock out of these.  It was back in my girl guide days, and I was the unlucky one to get to use it during one of our camping trips.  That was one of the most uncomfortable weekends of my life!!  But comfort aside, I thought it was a great idea for recycling them.  But unfortunately now I don't remember how it was done.  If anyone is really interested though I might be able to scrounge up some directions from my old leader.

Actually... waaaaaayyyy back in the day... and by that I mean the mid-late 80's ounks wore them as bracelets and we'd weave them into things.. like bags... and jewelry and stuff...

I saw a photo of the pop-holder hammock in a book called something like "1001 Things To Do With Pantyhose".  Dyed  pantyhose was used to weave through the loops of layered plastic.

I cut them into individual circles and crochet around them to form a kitchen towel holder - it's a circle with a rectangle off the top.  You add a button and you can loop it through the handle of your cuboard and hang a towel through it.

I've seen them made into snowflakes but don't know how it's done.  There's a street, here in Victoria BC Canada, that goes all out to decorate a Christmas and hangs the snowflakes from the trees.  We don't get much snow in this part of Canada.  I'll try and find out how it's done if anyone's interested.

My mom crocheted around them to make bracelets, and coasters. About 10 years ago, I looped fabric around them (so the edges stuck out), to make Christmas ornaments, and they still look great!

How would you make a hammock? How do you connect them so it wont fall apart if you sit on it?

Once when it's told,
twice when it's explained,
and thirdly, ten minutes later when I get it.

Welcome to Victoria!  I think it is Wollaston (not sure of the spelling) in Esquimalt.  Closer to Christmas the local paper puts out a map to tour to all the best decorations.  There's some really good ones so try and keep an eye out for it.

We used to cut them into circles, crochet around them and join them into a crocheted trivet.  My mom and mil still have the ones I made.
