Bottle Cap Coasters

Just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day, I decided to make some bottle cap coasters.  These would be perfect if you’re having a party, or if you’re looking for something to do with the bottle caps after Saint Patrick’s Day 😉

You’re going to need:

– Bottle caps

– Cork board  (I found squares at A.C. Moore)

– Hot glue gun with plenty of refill glue

– Cotton balls

– Newspapers (a must for almost every craft!)

– Acrylic Sealer/Finisher (optional, but recommended)

If necessary, cut the cork to fit the size coaster you want to make.  I wanted to make 3 by 3 square coasters, and found that an exacto knife was the easiest way to cut the cork.

Next, you’re going to glue a small cotton ball to the inside of bottle cap.   This is so that you’ll have something to stick to the cork (since the bottle caps are hollow when they’re upside-down).

Now you’re ready to glue the bottle caps to the cork!  I found that a lot of glue, right around the inner edges worked best.

Don’t forget to take a minute to admire how awesome your coasters are looking!  If you’d like to add some shine (and come on, who doesn’t???), you can spray them with acrylic sealer/finisher.

Did someone say party time??  Use your coasters to start replenishing your bottle cap collection 😉
