Aluminum (Aluminio, Lacre) Pull-Tab Crochet Future Projects

Hi everyone,

Has anyone here ever made a crochet project using those aluminum pull-tabs from soft drink cans?

Over the last 3 years or so, I've been seeing this type of crochet on the internet and I thought, "how interesting and what a great way to recycle / reuse!"

Anyway, I have accumulated a lot of these tabs and I have them stored in a rather large plastic bucket.  Don't know what I am going to make with these right now.

Most of them are the aluminum-colored tabs but I have some colored ones as well.

Any ideas on what to make with these?

A very nice blog reader passed on an excellent blog link with some directions and suggestions of what can be created with crocheting and the aluminum pull-tabs on soft drink cans.

Here is the link:

Suzy has the directions typed out in English, on a motif flower made with six of these pull tabs.

Here are some pictures of other things which can be made with these tabs (no directions for these on her blog though):


  1. Go to youtube and look under Creatividades100 you will love what this lady creates with the tabs, good luck.

  2. Wow, thank you so much for this youtube channel. What she makes with the pull tabs is mind-blowing! :)


Please leave a comment; I'd love to hear from you! :)
