We have a soda bottle and have collected many, many of the little used steel soda chargers.  Any idea what to do with them?

We have come up with --

-wind chime

-hanging .22 targets

-and I saw someone had used 3 to make a coat rack

We could really use some inspiration!   Grin

I think some recycling places accept them as scrap metal and will give you cash for enough of them.  Smiley  I play paintball and one guy was doing this after pump events that use those little gramlettes to power the guns.

If you wanted you could try slicing them into thin rings, polishing the edges and doing some sort of modified chainmaille for curtains or decorations. 

Maybe cut off the skinny neck portion, paint them different colors and use them as decorative ends for dowels used to hang fabric wall hangings.


Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
