How to make a bottle cap necklace
Upcycled Bottle Cap Necklace Tutorial
Crafty, cheap, easy, and cute!
What you need: used bottle caps, (wash 'em first), picture or fabric scrap, maybe a cut out from a magazine, Envirotex emulsion (at Hobby Lobby) OR glass circles, necklace bail, hot glue gun, and a chain.
If you need these supplies I have kits available. Email me and I'll send you one with a printed tutorial. :o)
You can substitute E6000 glue for the glue gun if you prefer.
Let's get started:
Before starting on assembly, if you want to--paint your backside bottlecap with a cool color like this:
2.Cut out the image you selected at 3/4 inch circle.
3.Glue it down into your bottle cap.
3. I don't have a pic of this, but mix your Envirotex as directed on the box. It's easy, just mix it and fill the liquid into the bottle cap, ON TOP of the image.
If useing a glass circle, pump 3-4 squirts of glue onto the image and mash your circle down.
Let dry at least 12 hrs. I rec 24 hrs if you used Envirotex.
4. Glue your bail onto the back of the bottle cap so it's centered and hangs appropriately for your image.
Let this dry for 2-3 hrs before moving.
5. Slip the chain through the bail. You're done! So cute, so easy!
