Bottle Cap Containers


One of the first uses I was aware of for ‘Bottle Cap Containers’ was for hides for geo-caching,  but they’re handy for other little things like jewelry findings or beads or buttons or little stuff.

My Grandson tested these in water and
discovered they are ‘NOT WATERPROOF ‘

They’re fairly easy to make.
Here’s a photo of the way I make them

 

Happy crafting!

Windy Wednesday (windsocks)

IMG_9032

There’s been some super windy days here lately. The winds reminded me of a windsock project I’ve been thinking about since last year when we bought a couple of windsocks for the garden. I was surprised at how little there is to a windsock. It occurred to me that a windsock could be made out of plastic soda pop bottle or a plastic milk jug and plastic grocery bags.

The above photo is the result of my attempts. Not bad, they fly pretty well. I wish I had of had some more different colors of plastic bags. I can imagine a windsock made out of a rainbow of colors blowing in the wind.

I think the windsocks are kind of a neat way to recycle a little bit of trash into something a bit fun.

You’re welcome to click on either of the images below to get an idea of how I created the windsocks.
These aren’t tutorials, so if you want more info, just ask and I’ll try and explain how or what I did.

Here’s wishing for all your winds to be warm & to my snowed
in frozen friends I wish for your winds to be warm & thawing.
