i'm not sure if this has been said but what about game board pieces? i'm sure if i looked at my games i'm missing half my checker pieces a few SORRY markers etc.
if you have a bunch that are the same color you could use them for checkers? dno.
I was gonna suggest something like this as it was an idea I came up with for a Christmas present last year and never got around to doing.
I have TONS of beer caps (worked at a bar for over a year and had people saving them for me and such) and for a Christmas present I wanted to fill the backs of them up with something and make a nice checkerboard with logos of the beers (possibly a collage out of the beer labels although I was never able to get too many off nicely to use) and then make the pieces in sets of the beers the people like (like one full set of Coors Light, one full set of Miller Light.... etc) so that each person has their own set of pieces to play with.
Well I was making some beer cap magnets today and thought that might be a fun thing to do with magnets. Like to make a checker game for on the fridge (or magnetic marker boards like I have). Also good for playing Connect 4 or tic tac toe on a magnetic surface!
I've come up with a cool idea, but I'm not sure just how to make it work yet. I'd love some tips. I have a small hanging shelf, and a ton of bottle caps. I was thinking of gluing these onto the shelf, either completely covering the sides and backs (most likely keeping the shelves themselves clear to make sure they are flat) or doing a design or pattern. But what would be the best way to affix them? I want the logo side up, at least for most of them. (I may do the reverse with the buds and coronas, lol). I think I'll try to fill them with hot glue and see if that works, but I doubt it. Would modge podge be strong enough? Would any other glue be strong enough, considering it would just be the edges glued down? I know that super glue doesn't work already. Would I have to tack them in, or use resin? Any tips would be appreciated!
I wanted to do a table also, or possibly bar stools with caps on the part that you sit on or at least around the circle top section (like on the outside) and I was thinking if you (or your dad/husband...) have one of those wood drills that do the circles, you could drill a circle either a little smaller than the cap so that it's a wooded section that the cap could be glued on (like the cap inside surface would be completely filled by the wood area) or you could just make a circle indent, like a small ring, that would be filled with glue and the edges of the cap would go into it. I'd think those things would help them stay on better. Or also I was considering just nailing right through the cap instead of using glue at all. I haven't gotten around to actually doing any of this so I don't know how well it works but those were the ideas I had.
