I made this tutorial before going to artfest, but never had time to post it. These were one of my artfest trades and they disappeared very quickly. I had several people asking how I made them, and with what, so I thought I’d share.
First, since we rarely drink soda or beer, it took me a really LONG time to collect the bottle caps that I had. We did just recently discover Virgil’s root beer and cream soda, so I may get more bottle caps over the summer. The stuff is really good. You can’t have an outdoor picnic without a little cream soda or root beer, right?
spray painted bottle caps
bottle caps, spray paint (optional), mod podge or matte medium, small circle cutter (3/4″), pretty paper, printed words, white glue, glitter, sticker gems, glass glaze, artificial flowers, brooch pin backs, hot glue gun.
Using mod podge or matte medium, glue paper circles into center. Allow to dry.
Print and cut out words of choice. Glue into place. Allow to dry.
Outline circle edge with white glue and sprinkle on your favorite glitter (mine is the Martha Stewart kind).
Add a sparkly gem if desired. Allow glitter/glue/gem to dry completely. Brush off excess glitter if needed.
When completely dry, glue on flower and brooch pin back with a hot glue gun.
