Keep It Under Your Cap

Total Time Needed: 1-2 Hours

Think small! These tiny, jewel-like bottle-cap magnets will look fabulous on your fridge door.

Materials

  • Paper
  • Clear packing tape
  • Quarter
  • Tacky glue
  • Bottle cap
  • Sequins, rhinestones, beads, googly eyes, and other small decorations
  • Clear sealant
  • Hot glue
  • 1/2-inch-wide magnet

Instructions

  1. Start by choosing a piece of paper for the collage base. Cover both sides of the paper with clear packing tape (the liquid sealant you'll use later might discolor it otherwise). Using a quarter as a template, cut a circle from the covered paper and use tacky glue to affix it to the inside of a bottle cap.
  2. Now, add sequins, rhinestones, beads, googly eyes - anything that's fairly flat and small - with glue. Let the glue dry, then brush on a generous coat of clear sealant. (In our tests, DecoArt Triple Thick gave us the glossy finish we wanted.)
  3. When the sealant is dry, use hot glue to attach a strong 1/2-inch-wide magnet to the back of the cap.
