DIY: Vintage Bottlecap Magnets
You guys. These are the easiest things in the world to make. Like EVER.
Small circular magnets
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Step 1 - Find a source for old bottle caps. Some people collect them, some find them on ebay, some find them in thrift/antique stores. Me? I have a guy on ebay that I get them from. Just search on ebay under the term "vintage bottle cap lot".
Step 2 - Go to Michaels or Home Depot and get a pack of small circular magnets to match up with the number of bottle caps you will be using.
Step 3 - with a hot glue gun, attach the small magnets to the back of the bottle caps.
I completed my sets (which are sold in stores around the Bay Area as gift items and on my etsy site) by getting metal carpet tacks (I think that's what they are called) at Home Depot and backing with my business card.
So simple. Great gift. The end. Now go forth and create some of your own!
