What are you gonna make today?
Earth Day, May 1st and Mother's Day are just around the corner, why not celebrate all of them with one project! Creating mini-May Day baskets with mouthwash bottle caps is great way to get into the spirit of Earth Day (reuse, recycle and reduce).
But what if you don't celebrate May Day? Then make it one of your Mother's Day projects. It can be used in a variety of ways - from a simple candy container to a small planting pot (drill a hole through the bottom for drainage). Extra fine point paint pens are the key to producing a colorful pattern around the cap, however some caps don't have the distinctive ridges. If you cap is ridge free, consider using the pens to add a free formed design!
You can also mix up the designs for your handle, use basic wire with a twist or beaded stringing wire.
