So I had asked some friends to give me their bottle caps since I wanted to make coasters like another member posted. I was inspired to make these instead:



I think they're cute.

I love these. You did such a nice job.I wish I could create with clay like this. Are you using magnets to hang them on the string?

These are so cute!  I think the house is my favorite.  Or the tree.  Or the snowman ... okay. I really like them all!

Thank you both. My boyfriend was nice enough to drill holes in them so I could put a jump ring right into the bottle cap. I like it better that way and he swears he doesn't mind drilling little holes in things for me. (I had him drill holes in about 40 pens so I could add dangles to them Cheesy )

Those are very cute!  Although I'm a huge snowman fan, my favorite is the Christmas ball.

Very cute!  Did you put the clay onlays onto a layer of black clay, or just paint the bottle cap interiors black then add the clay onlays?

I put them onto black clay as I thought it looked better.

Have you ever thought of pouring epoxy resin (or epoxy glue) inside the caps and over the embellishments for some of them?

Forgot to say those are very nicely done btw Grin... and some are quite fiddly too (like cabin and Santa)  Shocked
Would be great to see some closeups too.

Super cute! I'm sad I didn't see these when you originally posted them! But I haven't been stalking the poly clay posts like I used to.

Those are absolutely awesome. It would be great to have several of the strung together hanging on the wall for Christmas Grin
