I am in a recycling mood! Here's a few of the bottlecap magnets and ornies that I just finished. They are SUPER-easy to make and I really enjoyed all the glueing and glittering....kinda like being back in grade school!
Hung a few on a 2 ft. tree in my craft room.

Close up view of the ornie.
The vintage Santa images are from Deena at
She is having a sale on some of the bottlecap images now!!
I used a rusty tin snowflake for the back. I left off the trim around the edges as it hid the snowflake.

An assortment of magnets!
I've collected trims of all sorts for quite a while, so I just played around and tried to make them all a little different.

I used crepe paper to make the ruffled backs. I started out by sewing and gathering....BUT.....this proved to be very time consuming! I ended up just gathering the crepe paper accordion style, and then tied it in the middle with string, and fanned it out.
This was lots easier!!

I love the old tinsel look. Bought this trim at Hobby Lobby in the Mini-Tree section.
I used Glamour Dust and Glass Glitter for the sparkle!!

Hard to see, but they look so pretty with the glitter!
Hope that you've enjoyed these.
If anyone has some bottlecap ideas and tips to share, would love it if you'd post a comment ! :)

Next time I hope to show you some cones that I'm doing!

Hope everyone is having a good week!
