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!

    I have been saving tabs for a few years off of anything that opens with a tab big or small ...of course I have them in separate cans so as not to get them mixed together ...i am wanting to make me a hanging curtain with mine but I think this idea is also cute I don't know which one I make to make first love your idea ...only I don't have a garden so looks like Curtain will win out instead

      Add the gem to your curtain that your thinking about making. Thatt way the gems can catch the light through your curtain! Just an idea that way you get both ideas together!😊
