Bottle Cap Decor Is Flipp’n Awesome

Repurpose / Refurbish

It’s funny how one day you look at something as useless trash, the next, it’s an opportunity for an amazing design element. Most recently, bottle caps appeared guilty and fabulous as charged, perfect morsels of round tin tiles bubbling with colorful personality.

Today’s “Design Candy” is really a mini wish board for me, future DIY projects you’ll most definitely see in an upcoming blog. I’m fortunately armed with the proper “bottle bunnies” collector: the Cap Catcher, so in no time I’ll have enough caps to begin my first tiny tile tiling job. Meanwhile, I’ll be sure to tell my husband Matt and his hockey buddies to have as many “Heinies” as they wish…just be sure not to flip ’em underneath the sofa where they’re hard to reach.
