Hello! Hope you enjoy this DIY project! I was inspired to make this project by the many bottle caps I have saved throughout the year. I thought this would be a cute and fun project to hang on my back porch.

The supplies needed for this project are simple! Bottle caps, paint, glitter glue, string, mason jar lid and a hot glue gun! The bottle caps are recycled and the rest of the supplies I picked up at Walmart.








The first step is to paint the bottle caps. I chose shades of aqua and teal to match my décor! I also added glitter glue to some of the caps for a little sparkle!
Once the paint and glitter glue dry down completely spray them with a sealer. I used Mod Podge Matte Clear Acrylic Sealer.

Take your hot glue gun and glue down a string to each side of the mason jar lid to create a handle for hanging.
Cut different size stings to hang from the mason jar lid and glue the bottle caps to the strings. I did different lengths using 3, 4 and 5 bottle caps per string.
Next step is to glue each string to the mason jar lid.
Let it dry and you are done!
