    Default project: craft with milk jug lids

    i am trying to make a crafty item maybe like a chandelier with milk jug lids.
    here's how i am doing it
    1. first i cut out the center part of the lid with a can opener. i get a ring
    2.i bought a multicolor fancy yarn and wrap the ring with the yarn all the way around.
    3. join these rings with small pieces of yarn to form a circle.

    i am planning to do a big circle , maybe 2 or 3 rounds and then start hanging the remaining rings like a chandelier. would need lot of lids . so i will have to ask my friends if they can save their milk lids for me.

    thanks

    My neighbor made something similar to your project.

    She used the rings from the 1/2 gallon/gallon milk jugs. Crocheted in red and/or green yarn around them (I'm not versed in crochet terms) similar to what you've done and arrange the rings in a Christmas tree shape, aligned similar to a bowling pin arrangement with 4 rings on 1st/bottom row, 3 rings on 2nd row, 2 rings on 3rd row and 1 ring on top/4th row, and crocheted/tied them together. Then she attached little bells or little oraments to dangle in each of the rings and topped the top of the Christmas tree with a ribbon bow and a loop to hang on the door or wall. I remember they were soooo cute.

    I hope I've decribed it clear enough for you to understand.
