Bottle Cap Coasters
I loved looking at all of the Valentine’s crafts from the Link Party, so I decided to feature a couple Valentine’s crafts on the blog this week. Today I will show you how to make a bottle cap coaster. You could switch up the colors and make these coasters for any occasion. Lime and emerald bottle caps would make a cute St. Patrick’s Day coaster!
- 9 bottle caps(I used 5 white and 4 red)
- Crafting foam(this can be found at any craft store) or a wood cut out
- E-6000 glue or any other heavy duty craft glue
Start out by placing your bottle caps on the foam to get the dimensions of your coaster and then cut out your coaster base. My coaster measured about 4 inches by 4 inches. Feel free to use more bottle caps for a larger size coaster. You could also do a circle shape instead of a square. I saw some really cute heart foam cut outs at the craft store that would be great for this project as well.
Now it’s time to grab your glue. Turn your cap color side down and apply glue to the entire edge of the bottle cap. Stick your bottle cap glue side down on the coaster base. Continue this until you have glued down all of the bottle caps. Allow the glue time to dry before displaying your new coasters for use.
Experiment with different color combinations and shapes to create coasters for every occasion. I would love to see the different coasters you create, so please post them on our Facebook wall. I hope you enjoy making this easy craft!
