The fiance had been collecting green soda bottle caps for about a year, and once I had collected two rather large bags full, I decided it was time to do something with them.  That's when this lovely little project came to existence!



Here's a photo of the base alone so you can see cap placement.  You can also see how I'm starting to hot glue the leaves into the cup.

That's really neat! I think I need to ask my family to start saving their caps!

Thanks Meggie!

I'm actually having a fall wedding next year and have been thinking about making these for centerpieces... then just put a pillar candle in the middle.  Goodness knows I have enough bottle caps.

What a beautiful idea! I love this.  I've been saving bottle caps for so many years.  My dad and my brother save them and bring them to me in bags, so does my aunt.  I have a large tupperware bin full of them.  I was originally going to use them to make a mosaic for my art class.  I've since graduated, and the collection has grown to be quite large.  I hope one day I'll think of something as creative as this to use them for!
