Ask Maria “Plastic Soda Bottle Caps”

Print This Post Print This Post

I collect bottle caps for points to win from the manufacturer and have collected quite a few. What can I do creatively with all these plastic soda bottle caps?

You asked the right person! I found all kinds of cool craft projects that use plastic soda bottle caps on I too end up with quite a few bottle caps at the end of the month and love finding and designing cool projects with this little treasure.

One of my favorite projects with the plastic soda bottle caps is to turn them into pincushions. Clean and paint the caps. Cut a small circle of fabric slightly larger than the diameter of the cap, stuff with Polyfil and with a running stitch gather the circle into a ball. Adhere the ball with the gathered side down into the cap and you have a little pincushion.

I also use the caps to hold paint and to mix dyes. It’s fun to recycle the caps into something crafty!
