Don't throw away tin cans! You can transform tin can trash into tin can jewelery! These charming DIY earrings are quick to make and far to charming to pass by.

From the Blogger: "In this post, I'll show you how to make earrings out of vintage tins from a thrift shop. Vintage tins have all sorts of fun patterns and designs, so they're perfect to use for jewelry-making, and they're much cheaper than buying patterned or enameled sheet metal. I used a disc cutter for this project, but you could also trace the shape you want on the metal and cut it out with metal shears--I've seen some beautiful tin jewelry using that method."
