If you love a good beer or organic soda, then you’ve popped open a fair share of bottles. Instead of throwing away those old bottle caps, why not create some amazing bottle cap art? Here are some really cool ideas for upcycling those old bottle caps.
Backyard Bottle Cap Art
Collect a bunch of bottle caps and turn it into a beautiful mosaic mural on your backyard fence like this one featured on Happily Haverland. If you’re using metal bottle caps, be sure to spray the final work with some rust-proof sealer after you’ve finished to be sure your artwork can weather any storm.
Eclectic Bottle Cap Swirls
These swirls are easy and fun. The best part is that there is no “right” answer for how to make them. Use your own creativity and whatever bottle caps you have available to make your own masterpiece. You can even make these bottle cap swirls on fabric instead of wood or canvas. For more cool ideas check out A Quilter by Night.
