Bottle Cap Wreath

By: Samantha Palacio for Journey to "Green"

Here are some quick and thrifty instructions from Samantha Palacio on how to make a decorative wreath. Recycle those old bottle caps into a beautiful bottle cap wreath for an eco-chic holiday!

Bottle Cap Wreath


  • Cardboard box
  • Silver paint
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Bottle caps


  1. I started with a piece of a cardboard box. Shipping materials are a plenty around here so you will notice that reuse these a LOT.
  2. I traced two decorative bowls to get my perfect circles.

  3. I painted it silver. Green would be pretty too!

  4. I used hot glue to secure the bottle caps. The amount you will need will depend on the size of the wreath. I used about 50.

  5. In the end, I just reused a Velvet Bow that I had in my existing decor. Something about the simplicity of the actual bottle caps was appealing to me.

This is a new use for bottle caps, and I have plenty! Another take on this might be to paint most of them in various shades of green, then cluster three together on top of the first layer in a contrasting green, and add a few red ones in the center of the clustered ones to resemble holly in the wreath. Another option would be to,glue on some red pompoms or tiny round ornaments here and there .... Clever idea!

That's certainly an interesting idea. I think I would use sprigs of greenery or something between the bottle caps, but it's eye catching the way it is. I love the fact that she used a cardboard box, which I have done when making wreaths. It only makes sense to use what you have rather than buy something.

This is a neat family crafting day project. Only you should be the one manning the hot glue gun. Let your kids trace the bowls and if they are really good with scissors they can do that part too. Personally I prefer the metal bottle caps for the vintage-y look they have. It will be so much fun collecting all sorts of bottle caps!

I love it! I have used the metal bottle caps to create a set of snowman ornaments, so making these neat wreath will be a snap. I love the idea because we buy a ton of two-liter bottles each week, and I am always looking for ways to recycle them, but I have never come across something I can use the caps for, so this is a perfect idea. Thanks so much!

This is a really unusual idea for a festive wreath. You could make a similar project with the metal caps that come from beer bottles. They are shallower but shiny which would make them look very festive. You would just need to hammer them flat before gluing them to the cardboard base.

Interesting. I think I will start saving bottle caps from my travels to make this with and maybe hang it indoors. That would make a great conversation piece and memories too.

I see you live somewhere in or near the Carolinas- you have a Cheerwine cap on your wreath! I live in Texas but have been vacationing in North Carolina all my life, so Cheerwine is always a special treat.

I love this idea, thanks for sharing. Tina
