Bottle Cap Conversation Starters

Years ago I saw a purse online made completely out of bottle caps and wire.  Knowing how crafty I am, I decided to give it a try.  After getting all my friends to collect the caps, I started my projects.  Any of these are conversation starters!

FullSizeRender2This purse takes about 160 caps and a lot of metal wire, a tool that can punch a hole in four sides of the cap, so I will say this one is not for the faint of heart.  I’ll save that for another blog.  I decided that I had enough caps for other things.

Earrings: Punch a hole in the bottle cap then simply attach an earring finding then you can enjoy a pair of funky pair like these from Destinys Cove

Wind Chimes: Punch holes in the top and bottom of the bottle cap in a straight line.  Attach bottle caps one at a time with fishing line, with a space of approximately 1/2 inches of line between each cap.  Attach each line to a piece of metal in the shape of a circle.

Table tops, back splashes, decorative items, almost any funky idea you can imagine.

Keep Collecting!
