    Your local schools also collect those tabs to recycle for school equipment. They are alum.

    ask your friends and neighbors to save them...at a bar ?? catch them before they get rid of the can

    Marguerite S, I have seen tabs being sold by the zip-loc bag full on eBay...that might be a place to find them. :)

    Robin, I will be updating soon with a link to a tutorial with more explanation but basically the screen itself is made from furring strips and hardware mesh/screening nailed to it, with xmas lights poking through from the reverse side. I've since changed

    Feel in love with this. We save tabs for the school and have a good size garden fence. I plan to cover it with these. I have one side started and looks very good, even with the gray skies and rain. It's a wonderful idea and beautiful site out the kitchen
