The description of DIY Craft Bottle Caps Projects

Are you a savvy crafter? Are you interested in crafting to keep the earth green and clean? Do you have bottle caps on your counter or in your craft stash? It's time to craft with them and make something unique but useful!
While this project calls for glitter and glitter glue, you could substitute photos, cut from scrapbook paper, or print out a picture from your home computer. Note that these substitutions can be made in steps 2-3. Also, Diamond Glaze works perfectly over photos, scrapbook paper, and printer paper of every kind.
First, you'll need to gather your supplies: bottle tops (of course!), glue and paint brush (I used Modge Podge and a disposable paint brush), glitter (I love Martha Stewart glitter!), Diamond Glaze, glitter glue, permanent glue and small round magnets (optional).
Let's get started! Follow the steps below and you'll love the results!
1. Apply a generous coat of glue to the inside of the bottle cap.
2. Sprinkle a layer of your glitter into the top and shake off excess.
3. Use the glitter glue to draw a letter or shape (I used the first initial of my daughter's name) on top of the glitter.
4. Allow ample drying time for the glitter and glitter glue layer to dry. If the glitter layer is still wet or tacky, once you add the Diamond glaze, the glitter will float up and cloud your image. If the glitter glue is not dry, the Diamond glaze can cause the glue to blend together. If you've opted to use a picture, scrapbook paper, or photo, you do not have to wait for drying time. You can proceed to step 5.
5. Add several drops of Diamond Glaze inside top until glitter glue layer is completely covered. Diamond Glaze comes out of the bottle cloudy but dries crystal clear!
6. Leave the tops on a level surface to dry completely. If you need a quicker drying time, you can use a blow dryer or heat gun dryer to speed up the process.
Once the Diamond Glaze has finished drying, you can apply a magnet backing to the top using E-1000 glue or any other permanent adhesive. I recommend not using hot glue for this as the magnet is likely to pop off if the magnet falls to floor. Another useful place for your craft project is in a scrapbook or card. Some of the craft stores sell finished bottle caps, but they usually have a theme and are not personalized. This project allows you to create tops that fit your needs and helps keep the earth green.
Use your imagination and upcycle those bottle tops!
If you are the mother of a teen girl, no doubt you have been introduced to the world of bottle cap (b.t.) necklaces. These unique and very cute items of jewelry are all the rage among the young girls these days and no wonder b.t. necklaces are inexpensive to buy or fun to make and the girls trade them back and forth much like boys like to trade sports cards. It seems a girl simply can't have too many bottle cap necklaces these days.
What Exactly are Bottle Cap Necklaces?
For those of you who don't have a teen daughter and have never heard of b.t. necklaces you may be wondering just what they are. They are exactly what they sound like, necklaces made from bottle caps. While some of these necklaces are made from recycled bottles caps others are made from the bottle caps that you buy brand new in craft stores or where the bottling materials for home made beer can be found. The inside of the b.t. holds a picture or is even painted with a cute design and then the bottle cap is attached to a ribbon using a round link. Some even have extra beads or other dangling features at the bottom.
No one quite knows where the idea came from to start making necklaces from bottle caps but the idea was simply ingenious! These necklaces are fun and girls just can't seem to get enough of them. They really are the hottest thing since friendship bracelets.
