like many of my wonderful craft projects I got the idea for this collage from pinterest. the minute i committed to this project i had everyone i know start saving caps for me. i got TONS of caps, they made for a fantastic (and colorful) collage. i didn't limit myself to just soda caps,if you look closely at the pic you can see that i have just about every kind of top/cap: detergent caps, medicine bottle lids, deodorant, marker caps, chapstick caps, nail polish tops, shaving cream lids...... you name it, i glued it.
- bottle caps/tops
- spray paint
- hot glue gun
|arranging the caps|
- i began by spray painting my canvas a lovely Tiffany-esque blue color. obviously you don't have to do this, i just thought the collage would look cooler w/ a colorful background.
- i suggest arranging the tops on the canvas before you glue them down
- glue down your caps as you see fit.
- i didn't want the canvas to be too one-dimension, so i gave it some depth by gluing one cap inside another.
