Bottle caps are abundant and pretty much everywhere so why not make good use of them? Whenever you can its always good to reduce, reuse, and recycle so I'm going to show you how to make a cool and easy to make bottle cap necklace. This is a great gift for family and friends and you can customize the bottle caps with anything you want. Give it to a special someone on valentines day or wear one yourself to show your creativity and that you care about our planet. So what are we waiting for let's get started!
Step 1: Materials needed
For this project, you will need a cheap chain necklace (I got mine from Walmart for $5),16 bottle caps preferably the same size and color, Craft glue, Light blue acrylic paint, Leaf green acrylic paint, a drill, a 3/16 inch drill bit, a bowl, and a small paint brush. These materials costed me no more than $10 and acrylic paint can easily be found in the Walmart craft section. If you want to use different colors besides light blue and leaf green feel free to do so.
Step 2: Painting the bottle caps
Squeeze one color of the acrylic paint into the bowl and using the paint brush carefully and evenly paint 8 of the 16 bottle caps. Wash the bowl and paint brush to repeat the process with the other color. Your probably going to get a little "colorful" so lay down some sheets of paper before you start painting. Let the painted bottle caps dry for 24 hours.
