Project 3: Bottle Cap Magnets

I’ve been collecting bottle caps for a long time and really enjoy using them in craft projects. So far, I’ve made earrings, Christmas ornaments and magnets. I plan on experimenting with bottle caps in a doming block if I get one for my birthday (**fingers crossed**).

Today, I’ll show you the simple project of making bottle cap magnets. I made these for a coworker who loves Coca-Cola. They are on her overhead bins at work!

Supplies:

  • Bottle caps
  • Magnets
  • Hot glue gun

Like I said, this project is super easy. Fill each bottle cap with a little bit of hot glue and place the magnet right on top.

Be careful, the metal caps heat up quickly. Don’t burn your fingers!

Here’s the final product:

And here’s a bunch more I’ve made:

So, if you have a bunch of bottle caps laying around, now you can make them into colorful magnets for your fridge or your bar!

Enjoy.
