I love the idea of a belt.  Smiley

The only thing I could come up with was a boot scraper..YOu know, you nail them cork side up on a board===, I used a board the size of my door mat and just covered it with the caps,,,,, until I had a door mat that will take the mud off your shoes...it works but it ain't pretty.  Wink 

I saw another way....just glue them to gether to make a hot pad in various shapes.

But you can't WEAR these and I am all about clothes. That's why I think you belt is a better use of these old caps.

Your belt came out great!  I always attached tacks to the inside of the bottle caps and used them on a bulletin board, but that's obviously not nearly as cool as a belt.

Thanks so much for your comments everyone! thatgirlallie, I would love to use resin and everything on craftster looks great with them, but I have never worked with it  before and still have lots of questions.
