I have a HUGE collection of beer caps that I have been saving for a few years in hopes of making something with them. I had thought about a belt, but I am not sure how to go about that....not that itd use them all up. lol I dont just want to link them together, but engrave them into a leather (or fake leather) belt.

Any suggestions are welcome.

For a while I was working on a bottle cap curtain. By the time I got sick of finding beer bottle caps EVERYWHERE, the curtain wasn't a quarter done and I threw it all away.

The original idea was to sandwich the caps together, bottom to bottom, on string. Didn't have a glue gun and I couldn't clamp the caps together, so that idea was scrapped. The next idea was to bend the caps in half around the string. That seemed alright but was such a pain! More often than not the caps would go flying across the room when I tried to pinch them with my pliers.

If you want to try that you might have better luck. Definitely try a glue gun if you can.

I'm a total beer nerd and moving to San Diego last year, the micro brew capitol of the world, was like moving to paradise in more ways than one. Since I'm a total snob, I only drink most amazing micro brew tastiest beer ever and most of these beers have pretty darn cool bottle caps, so I started a collection. At the rate me and my boyfriend at the time were drinking, it wasn't long before I had a whooole bunch of them and one day I decided I had to do something with them. So I started making earrings! It's so easy.

Drill a hole through the cap. I use a hand drill, no electricity for me thanks!

Pull a piece of jewelry wire through the hole.

String some beads on, put it through an earring hook, and string the wire back through the beads.

I'll make a how-to sometime cuz I have no pictures and this one sucks, but I'm out of state at the moment so it will be a later day. Check out some pictures of the finished product though:


Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
