I had a TON of bottle caps that I had been collecting for several months, so I got out my glue gun and got to work.
The pic of the "Cola" caps isn't mine; it was one of the things that inspired me make this jewelry.
I also made bottle cap earrings, but I haven't posted them yet.
Caution! When using a hot glue gun it is very likely you will get some of the hot glue on you; if this happens - don't panic! Just run some cold water over the area with the glue on it, and then gently peel the glue off. :)
First I'll show you how to make a bottle cap ring. Ok, so, take your bottle cap.....
Place it on the decorative paper or whatever you've decided to use, and trace around the edge of your bottle cap with a pencil. Take your scissors and cut out the circle that you just traced; if there are any pencil marks left on the piece of paper, gently erase them.
Now, take your glue gun and put a tiny dot of glue inside the bottle cap. Push the circle that you just cut out, into the cap and let it dry.
Apply a small dot of glue to the back center of the bottle cap, and push the side of your ring onto it. Apply pressure for about 25 seconds, and then let it finish drying.
Voila, you have a stylish bottle cap ring!! :D
Now I'll show you how to make the necklace.... Follow steps 1-3 above ^^
you may have to make more, depending on how many bottle caps you want on your necklace. Use your hot glue gun to glue the bottle caps together. I'm just showing you the basics of what to do - so get creative! You can use one or dozens of bottle caps; the possibilities are endless!
Once the bottle caps are glued together, take your necklace chain, and using scissors - cut the chain in the very center. Glue the chain ends that you just cut, onto the back of bottle cap design that you created, and let it dry. (Sorry for the lack of pictures)
Congrats! You now have a bottle cap necklace!!
Last, but not least, the bottle cap hairclip! Get your clip and using your hot glue gun, apply glue around the edge of the clip.
Firmly apply the bottle cap to the glue clip, and keep pressure on it for 25 seconds.
Let it finish drying, and voila!!! You now have a cute hairclip!! That wasn't hard at all!
