I think drinking soda out of a glass bottle is so much better than drinking out of a can. It seems so much cooler somehow. And even cooler is the bottle caps. They come in so many colors and they are just…well…cool.  Sometime after we got married, I started collecting the bottle caps from glass soda bottles with the intention of recycling the bottle caps into…are you ready for this? Magnets! Yay! Such a fun way to spruce up your refrigerator and so easy too!

All you need to get started are:

Magnetic buttons

 Bottle caps

 Hot glue gun

To create your bottle cap magnets here are the two steps to do it! (Yes, TWO!)

  1. Place a blob of glue on the back of the bottle cap
  2. Adhere two magnets stuck together to the back of the bottle cap.

And…done! Easy, right??

Some notes on making them: The reason for using two magnets stuck together is because one is too short to hold the magnet to the refrigerator. The magnets will naturally pull to the bottle cap but the glue will help keep them together. Otherwise, if you try to move the magnets on your fridge, the bottle caps will just pop off.
