I can’t believe I actually got something done in time for this Pinterest challenge (hosted by Sherri, Katie, Erin & Cassie). I’ve been knocking projects out left and right lately, but none that were inspired by Pinterest, so they wouldn’t qualify for this challenge. Most of the things I’ve pinned on Pinterest are things that I either 1. need a house for, 2. have kids, or 3. getting married. So, it was really hard to figure out what I could do for this, but I remember seeing some bottlecap magnets on there, so I decided to knock those out. :)
Inspired & Tutorial by: Instructables
What you will need:
- hot glue gun & glue
Basically what you do is sand paper the back of the bottlecaps, and then hot glue the nuts onto the magnets, folllowed by hot gluing the nut onto the backside of the bottlecaps. I had trouble with two of the bottlecaps, and had to do them twice, but they seem to be working now. The Heineken bottle cap is also bent, since it’s a pry off, not a twist off. But I didn’t notice that until after I took the pictures. Also, this kitchen is not mine, it’s my parents. I did this project over there, so I figured why not borrow the fridge in the process ;) Oh, and these pictures are HORRIBLE. The lighting is way off and the colors are weird… I’m not very good at taking indoor pictures at night.
I got the bottlecaps all from my sister, who is a frequent bar-go’er. (Did I just make up a word?) She got me some Bud Lights, Smirnoff, Yeungling, Heineken, Rolling Rock, Coors and Keystone caps. It only cost me $2.59 for this project. (I just had to buy the magnets, which came in packs of 8.)
Let’s get a little closer to the bottlecaps…
Update; Got them home and on our fridge. :) (I can’t wait until the day we have stainless appliances…)
What project did you do for the Pinterest challenge? Something simple & easy, or something time-consuming and challenging?
