Beer Bottle Caps

  • Ok, I have a bad habit of collecting what my wife calls Junk. If I see a nice bottle, matchbook or bottle cap, I have a tendency to keep it for awhile. Maybe I was a squirrel in a past life, collecting shiny objects. With the bottles at least I can use them for home brew, with the bottle caps, I thought it would be really cool to make a mosaic, but that is a big project and I don't have that kind of patients. Well, I found something to do with those caps…… refrigerator magnets ! I went down to the craft store picked up a hot glue gun, and some magnets.

    Since the first time I'v done this I learned that hot glue is not the best thing to use, now I use liquid nail from the hardware store.

    Fun and easy, and making use of what would be otherwise considered trash.

    newbiebeerluv Holy crap this is a much better way to honor my favorite beers... I could cry over the two solo cups full of caps that got tossed out during my last move! But wait... this just means I get to start over again, right? SWEET!
