Introduction: Corona Salt and Pepper Shakers

Picture of Corona Salt and Pepper Shakers
We recently went out to eat at a Mexican Food Restaurant, which is a treat for us because we don't go out to eat very often. My husband reached for the salt and pepper shakers and poured some over his food. He exclaimed!  " Now, these are some salt and pepper shakers!"  So I examined the lid and knew drilling small holes in bottle caps would work just as well. I purchased the salt and pepper shakers from the restaurant for $4.00. I went out today looking for bottle caps for this instructable and could not find any. I decided to go ahead and post this instrucatble simulating how to make them. 

Step 1: Supplies

2 Empty Corona bottles
2 Bottle caps

You can use regular bottle caps and drill the holes yourself or order them here with the holes pre-drilled.,-caps,-cap,-salt/Detail

Step 2: Tools

Step 3: Drilling Holes

Drill the holes in the bottle caps the size and number you want.
I gave 2 shakes to each shaker and you can see how much came out using the purchased caps. 
We thought they worked great!

Step 4: Filling the Bottles

There you have it! 2 very usable shakers that work great using glass beer bottles or what ever you like and some bottle caps.

"2 Bottle caps"...
What kind of caps are these???

sunshiine (author)steelnix2012-07-27

2 Bottle caps one for each salt and pepper. The ones pictured I assume are made for the Corona beer bottles and already have the holes made. You can buy them at a bar supply or at the link I posted. If you are making your own, I know they sell them without the holes but I am sorry I don't recall where I saw them. It may have been Walmart. I saw them hanging on a hook on an isle and almost bought them. They were designed for pop bottles. Thanks for commenting and have a great day!
