- Used bottle caps that are not bent
- Thin nail
- Easy Cast resin (found in most craft stores)
- Scrapbooking paper (or images from old greeting cards)
- 1” circle paper puncher
- Wine charm rings
First, gently hand wash the used bottle caps to remove any dirt that might exist
Next, take a small nail and hammer a hole into the inside of the edge of the bottlecap. This is where the charm ring will go through.
Use the circle paper puncher to start cutting 1” circles of patterned paper or cute images that you would like to see in the bottle caps (old greeting cards are great for this!)
Once you have the 1” images you’d like to use, start gluing them to the inside of each bottle cap.
While you’re waiting for the glue to dry, start mixing the resin. Follow the product’s directions and make sure to take the proper safety precautions as the resin is toxic. I usually wear rubber gloves, goggles, and a dust mask.
Once the glue has dried and the resin is mixed, use a plastic spoon to fill each bottle cap with the resin. Make sure you do not fill the cap above the hole that you made earlier, or you won’t be able to get the wine charm ring through. They will need to dry 24-48 hours before they are completely hard.
- Once the resin had fully dried, string the bottle cap through the wine charm ring. You can also string on a few beads for added beauty.
