Bottle Cap Jewelry - Blast From The Past

Morning All,

One more blast from the past, even though this was a holiday project by swapping out the images you can make this anytime. A really fun kid's craft during the school holidays.

*********************************************************************************






Happy Monday,

It's Mel from Mellywood's Mansion here today and I'm sharing a quick easy and very cute Valentine gift.

I have to admit I'm not huge on Valentines Day and don't usually do much, but my daughter has just started the new school year and she is feeling a little nervous about new classes, teachers and friends, so I thought I would make her something to cheer her up a bit.

Supplies:

  • Flattened Bottle caps - (buy or make your own)
  • Epoxy Dots
  • Bottle cap images I bought these ones here
  • Paper
  • Jump rings
  • Clasp
  • Double sided tape
  • 1 inch punch



1. Attach the clasp to two bottle caps using the jump rings, then add the caps to fit wrist, for Elizabeth who is a tall 10 year old, I used 6. 



 2. Using the double sided tape, stick down the image and place the epoxy dot over the top



It's that easy, and since I had a few more images I added a pendant and a key ring to her little gift.




Playing with bottle caps is so much fun and you can make them to fit anyone. Personally I wouldn't give them to anyone younger than four, in case of choking but I guess it depends on the child.


Thanks for reading

  7. I actually had a case of Viagra to sell so I stopped by, but then I saw your message, and realized there were no sales to be had here. Not wanting to waste a trip, I spied your amazing jewelry and was impelled to comment on how awesome your bottle caps are! Cheers Mel!!

  8. These are so fun! I hope to try this some day...and by that I mean, probably never because making jewelry scares me. So cute though. I should put my big girl panties on and give it a try.

  14. You do such a good idea with the bottle craft caps. We had bottles yesterday, but I don't think we thought to save the caps, ugh! They'd probably make for a cute homemade checker set too...gah, I'm thinking crafty right this second. I blame you!! :)

    Sharing your post. :)
