Step 1: Materials
- Hot Glue Gun
- Bottle Caps
- Paint and Paint Brush (optional)
Step 2: Pick the Shape
Using a cup or mug as a guide, design the shape of the coaster that you want to make.
Make sure that it is big enough to fit different sized cups/mugs
Step 3: Glue It Together
Once you have the design figured out, use the hot glue gun to glue it together, making sure to work quickly before the glue cools
Because of the shape of the caps that I used, I had to place the glue at the bottom of the side of the cap, to make sure that they stuck together
Step 4: Finished Coasters
You now have finished bottle coasters.
I decided to leave my coasters multi coloured, but as an option you can paint the coasters the colour of your choice.
