Bottle Cap Crosses


Use bottle caps and family pictures to create Christian crosses full of reminders of what to be thankful for. These crosses from I Love to Create are a great activity for Bible studies and families to make together. These crosses could also be an Easter craft.

Beer bottle caps would work as well.

great fo Bible school project

this cross sounds great, will make them for Easter gifts...many thanks

These are great. Try filling the caps with liquid acryilic that dries clear that seems like it would preserve pictures.

Are these made from old coke bottle caps or current bottle caps. They look like the old fashioned pop off bottle caps. I guess one could use the new type plastic caps with the same results.

I love this! I collect crosses and have them in between pics on the wall. Can't wait to make them.

this would be great for Bible School project.....thanks for idea....

Thanks! I just found a great Mother's Day Gift!
