Few people know that the rings for opening beer cans called stay-on-tab and it has more than 30 years! And they can not throw away, and make them interesting and useful things. See the step by step photo tutorial about how to create an original lamp from aluminum rings!
lots and lots of aluminum rings
lamp frame (can be made of wire)
Detachable rings of the cans. The amount depends on the size of the frame tube.
Take the ring, bend pliers as shown in the photo by about 20 degrees.
For the top row of rings do not need to make an incision, just bend.
Take the lamp frame, unscrew the bulb from it.
Bend the rings and fasten them to the frame as shown in the photo.
If needed “booster” screwdriver, inserting it into a bent ringlet.
Rings for anchoring the entire circumference.
Carefully look at the picture. Rings should be as close to each other, otherwise we can not “priplesti” next row.
Therefore, reaching the perpendicular to the spokes, you need to ring to wear it. For this incision it and stifle pliers.
So incision ring.
Scourge next row. Do not forget that all the subsequent rows of rings not only incised, but bent.
Almost all the work behind, we do the last row. To do this, cut the edge of each ringlet as shown in the photo.
Rings of the last row should bow brick circle and cling to the previous row.
