I don't know about you, but in our household we go through quite a few cans of frozen lemonade in the summer. We make a gallon or more of raspberry lemonade (which uses 4 Raspberry Zinger® tea bags and the water you steep them in, 12 ounces of pink lemonade concentrate, 1/2 cup sugar, and water to fill a gallon jug) every week. That means I have a stack of metal lids saved from the juice cans. (Of course I don't have to save them, but they always seem full of possibilities to me.)
Some time ago I made quite a few simple ornaments (like the blue one above) using these lids and scraps of wrapping paper. If you are interested in making some of these (they are easy enough for kids to help with), here is the link:
Simple Ornaments from Juice Can Lids.
Today I came upon this link to absolutely beautiful photo ornaments which, believe it or not, are also made from the metal lids from juice cans.
