And your hunt for the best bottle cap crafts is over…! Bottle caps are one of my favorite craft materials and for good reason.
- Small to store
- Usually free!
I’ve collected some of the best bottle cap crafts for all ages and purposes from around the web and put together this list of awesome bottle cap crafts for you!
Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.
I have included in this list ideas that use both plastic bottle caps and metal soda or beer bottle caps. While plastic ones are easy to collect on your own (if you don’t drink soda or seltzer, you can ask a friend to collect them for you – which is what I did for the most part), metal ones might be harder to come by. You can actually purchase metal bottle caps, as well as plastic ones, in case you’re having a hard time collecting them.
Otherwise, these bottle cap crafts are a great way to get them out of the landfill!
