My husband likes to drink Goose Island root beer. I always find the bottle caps lying around in the kitchen.
I have started a bottle cap collection.
Or the opportunity for a recyled project! I think these tops are pretty than your average beer bottle gray cap because they are white, PLAIN white... with possiblities.
I am in the middle of painting a magnet wall for my son and I have one magnet- good ole Vitavetavitamin. Although she is dazzling, she is NOT enough for the wall. I want all the letters of the alphabet and numbers 0-9.
This means, honey, that you need to drink 36 bottles of root beer...hmmmm THIRSTY!
Since I told my husband the plan- he happened to stumble upon some magnets at work and he brought them home. I like free stuff, I wonder if he can bring home 34 more?
Here's how I started my alphabet- I looked through a magazine for letters, placed the bottle cap over the letter and traced around it. I cut inside of my line and placed the letter on the bottom of the bottle cap.
First I tried clear tacky glue to seal it, but I didn't like how it turned out because it soaked through the magazine and discolored it a bit. So, I poured clear dimensional modge podge in the bottle cap- much better.
I whipped out my trusty glue gun and glued the magnets to the top of the bottle caps. I have four letters finished, only 22 more letters and 10 numbers to go, but first I have to get on my husband about drinking root beer!
Here they are on my chalkboard
