You’ve seen them almost everywhere. They are those little soft plastic things on sick packs of beverage bottles or cans. In fact, there are so many of these things around, surely there must be something you can create with them, to make life a little easier or fun. Here are some of the things you can do with six-pack rings, but you may have to act fast. Many of them are being replaced by sturdier plastics that won’t break when you carry them.

Closet Organization

Some people are using old six pack rings to help keep their clothing items better organized. For example, if you have a belt for a skirt or pants, hang a six pack holder over the coat hanger top, and you can place the belt on one the holders.


Do you need plastic washers for anything? If you have two different sized hole punches, you can use the material in the 6 pack holder to create washers.


Due to their shape, it is not too hard to make recycled bracelets from your used six pack rings. Start by cutting up the pack until you have six separate rings. There are many different ways you can decorate these rings. You may glue fabric, ribbon, aluminum foil, or any material that strikes your fancy. When you are done, you’ll have six attractive bracelets made from recycled materials.

Use Your Imagination

The good thing about old six pack rings is they have so many possibilities. Take the time to experiment and see what you can come up with. You may be able to develop a product people will be interested in, and you can make some money while performing an important service for the planet.

Make Your Own Trellis

If you have climbing plants, you can weave an attractive trellis with old 6 pack rings and some twisty used ties. It may take some time to save up these items, but you’ll have enough before you know it.

Please Recycle

It is important not to throw your old soft plastic six-pack rings in the trash. If they get into landfills, birds and animals looking for food may become entrapped in them. They can also make their way to the water and wreak havoc with marine life. If you are not into recycling, at least make sure the rings are all cut or broken. It only takes a minute, and you could be saving an innocent life.
