I am so excited to share this craft with you! GB and I've been working towards this craft for quite awhile.
I saw this great idea on Sweet Something Designs a long time ago.
For months GB and I have been saving bottle caps for this craft. We found ourselves pocketing beer caps at parties and at bars. Now it's become habit. I had so many caps leftover after this craft - my head is spinning with other options.
The blogger is crazy serious and pours acrylic water (check out her blog post to learn about that.) I decided to be a little less serious.
I started by gathering all of our beer caps.
I found this great condiment tray from Joann's. (I was thrilled when it was 60% off and I had a 20% off total purchased coupon. Big savings get me high,)
I removed the condiment dishes and lined bottle caps throughout the tray.
Next I separated the caps evenly in 4 groups.
Then I spray painted each group.
I had to spray two coats - the paint didn't adhere the first go around completely.
After an hour or so the caps were ready.
I lined the caps up in the tray determining whether to use a pattern or not. I was able to line the caps without a specific pattern. I loved the non-pattern.
Next, I add hot glue to two sides of the cap.
The glue dried fast so I had to place the caps quickly.
I'm not sure if this will be a permanent fixture in the kitchen - but I absolutely love my little tray!
This was a very easy craft! If you create this fun look - don't forget to tell me all about it!
