Bottle Cap Charms:
Once you know how to turn a bottle cap into a charm the possibilities are endless. You can use them for jewelry, hair clips, key chains, magnets, zipper pulls, game pieces. All you need is a 1 inch diameter image, a 1 inch whole punch, some glaze and a bottle cap. You can also use epoxy stickers to give the image a bubble effect and use a mallet to flatten the sides of the cap a bit for a flower effect. Click here to watch a tutorial video. You can buy images specially made for bottle cap charms on Etsy.
Tie Dye Crayons:
Instead of trowing out broken crayons, start creating your own. Simply put the broken pieces in a candy mold and heat them in the oven until they melt. Use a wooden skewer to create swirl designs. Let cool until hard and you have your own customized tie dye crayons. The best part is they change color while your drawing. I made blue & green bone shaped crayons for my son's dog themed birthday party a few years ago and they turned out great.
