What is it about bottle caps that makes them so intriguing? Maybe it’s the fact that they are little souvenirs of our favorite drinks. Or it could be their compact size & ready availability make them easy to collect.
It’s time you get your bottle cap collection out, and turn them into something beautiful. Even simple beer cap crafts, when skillfully executed, turn into nice DIY projects.
One cool idea is to create and decorate fridge magnets using beer caps. You need to resize some images you like so they fit the interior of the caps and print them out. Use puff paints or glitter to decorate the caps. Once you’re done with painting, you can use a two-part resin called Envirotex Lite in the cap covering all the paint. Lastly, glue a magnet on!
Using a similar concept, you can print out pictures of you and your boyfriend/girlfriend, fit them inside beer caps and place them in a picture frame. You can add some initials or special dates to create some variety. This can be a nice Valentine’s Day gift idea!
