How-To: Six Pack Snowflake


Instructables user thematthatter writes:

My mom and I used to make these Six Pack Snowflakes when I was little. This year she surprised me with a set of 6 pack rings and made me feel guilty until I made one for my new house.

These lovely snowflakes are created with the 6 pack “rings” that used to be found everywhere on cans and bottles. People found out that the plastic takes like 12 million years to break down and that wildlife gets trapped in them.

Its harder to find them now, but you can still find them on the “mini” 6 oz cans and on the plastic bottles. This project recycles them so that you can save the environment.
