I love upcycling, recycling, refashioning; it is such a thrill to make something useful or beautiful from what would’ve been thrown away. Bottle caps are easy to find and come in a great variety of colors and sizes, making them an excellent recycled craft supply. I have recycled bottle cap art along with some crafts to share – start saving those caps and get crafty!
I loved looking at the unique bottle cap art and installations made by Michelle Stizlein, what a fun collaborative art piece to do with a class or as a family!
These bottle cap mandalas made by Bryant Holsenbeck are crazy cool! Click through to see more – I picked this picture because all the people standing around it help you realize how huge it is.
The portraits made in bottle caps are so startling, created by Mary Ellen Croteau. How does one even “think” like that, with all the color shadings! It’s amazing.
I didn’t get photo permission to share, but click through to check out this stunning wall art made from bottle caps – how beautiful is that!
For something that’s easily done in a weekend, I found some crafts, too!
