Up-cycling Bottle Caps 2018

Up-cycling Bottle Caps 2018

A recent task from our last spring cleaning list has been to dispose of the plastic bottles that have been collected over the past 3 months.  Taking care of the environment is important to us, so we bring our plastic bottles to the recycling center as often as we can.  It’s also a nice reward to get $20 (or more!) which I can then use for my crafts.

While sorting the plastic bottles into a bag, I noticed all the colorful bright pink fuchsia lids from the top of our milk containers and got a new idea: create a DIY upcycled flower organizer!  I saved 6 medium size pink fuchsia lids, and another medium one in blue color.  A larger plastic black lid from a mixed nuts container was perfectly sized to use as the base. 

After washing the lids with soap and water, I used tacky glue to first attach the 2 medium lids back to back (blue color on top) and then glue those onto the larger lid.  It only took 5 minutes for the glue to dry and the project was done!

It’s also nice to use the same color lids together!

The home made flower organizer container is super easy to make and so handy to use, especially for smaller crafts where I only need a few of the findings on my project.  Additionally, as a DIY home crafter, this can be used for organizing and storing other arts & crafts items aside from beads and findings.  I plan to make more of these eco-friendly, upcycled flower organizers for all my other tiny miniature handcrafted clay projects, such as buttons!

You can also read the blog I shared on my DIY Colorful Paint Pallete idea I easily made in the past at home, very similar to this eco-conscious flower organizer project.

Thanks for reading, and happy crafting!
