Plastic Bottle Caps Crafts Ideas
In a separate article, we saw what we can do with plastic bottles instead of throwing them away. Options were countless and the final results were simply spectacular with the waste taking the shape of new object with a new utility in our homes. This time we are turning our attention to plastic bottle caps and see what new role they can play in our households without throwing them, as usual, in the garbage bin.
The first new utility we found for them is in the bathroom. Many times, soap dishes fill with water and the soap gets soft and doesn’t last that long while the dish gets sticky and hard to handle and calls for time to time cleaning. An easy solution is to use the plastic bottle caps, arranged and glued in a small container or a plastic lid, while using small gravel for aesthetic reasons. The soap will thus stay dry and could be used for a longer time.
If you have kids around the house, then, with a little patience and craftsmanship, you can easily turn the plastic caps into small toys for the children. These plastic lid ladybugs can also decorate your garden or the container garden on your terrace or balcony.
Get different types of caps, such as metallic ones from beer bottles and other beverages, stick a magnet on the back and get this very interesting fridge magnet. The more and different caps you use, the more colorful and livelier the appliance will get.
Some people went on and took the initiative and effort to a whole new level by creating plastic cap murals, genuine eco-tapestries.
More practical at home is a plastic cap curtain hanging at the main entry and protecting the interior from the nasty insects, such as flies. The curtain will surely make those entering your house stop for a minute and admire it.
If you associate the curtain with a plastic cap framed wall mirror, then the visitors will be simply speechless with surprise. The mirror brings extra freshness and color to the room and is indeed an original accessory.
