Yes, I know bottle caps have pretty much been done to death... but I'm still in love with them! I have used them to make adorable necklaces, hairbows, and now push pins!
This assortment in particular I made for my teenage brother, so they aren't so sweet, more punk, but I will love them! :)
They are super simple to make too. I just painted the bottle caps (I bought a large bag of unused, plain silver bottle caps) black. You could probably even spray paint them if you wanted too, make it even easier.
The printed the pictures on regular computer paper, and just used pictures I found on-line. I used a 1 inch circle punch to cute out the section of the picture I wanted, glued the picture onto the dried bottle caps with crafting glue (I've used spray adhesive as well). I then let them dried and sprayed them with several coats of spray sealent, letting each coat dry in between. Another glob of crafting glue attached the push pin to the back and there you have it.
I am looking for a better glue... I've used a hot glue gun, crafters glue, even Elmers... still looking for the best... any input on that??? Please and thank you!!
As we get closer to the holiday season (yay, it's Fall!) I'll probably be posting more and more craft type post... between the holidays and moving into our new place soon, I'm seeing many new projects ahead!! :)
And the painter/decorator/organizer/crafter in me smiles...
