Soda Tab Baubles Screen (Garden Decor)

Tabs from Soda & Energy Drinks paired with Glass Gems & Mirrored Mosaic Tiles!
I’ve been saving soda & energy drink tabs with the plan to do something crafty, and got the idea to glue glass gems/mirrored & colored mosaic tiles to the tabs and hang them from a wire mesh screen in my garden. When lit at night with a strand of simple holiday lights interwoven in the screen, the effect is quite pretty…and during the day, the sunlight will twinkle on the mirrors and shine through the baubles.
TIP: If you don’t have the colorful energy drink tabs on hand, you could spray paint the regular silver-colored soda tabs and create any color palette you want!
Difficulty: Easy

    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
