On the last episode of Designer MacGyver, I listed some excellent projects you could make with binder clips and give to teachers, if you were so inclined. Though I can’t blame you if you wanted to keep them for yourself, really. They were so cute!
Then, in the comment thread, I spotted an SOS from our own Liz Gray. “P.S. Hoping for a future Designer MacGyver post on *tasteful* ways to use beer bottle caps.” Well, this MacGyver can’t leave a damsel in distress! Liz, let these beer bottle cap crafts come to your rescue. (Underagers, you’ll have to stick to metal soda caps, but with the resurgence of all things retro, finding soda in glass bottles shouldn’t be too much of a problem.)
These bottle cap magnets from Instructables may be a little obvious, but they’re also fun and so simple to make, so they make the cut. Plus, you could use one to display your grocery shopping list and remind you to buy more brewskis. Again, please drink and craft responsibly!
You’ll never misplace your keys or accidentally grab someone else’s keychain when you add a cute bottle top to your set. Another in the “so simple, why didn’t I think of that?” vein from Craftbits.com.
Here’s an idea: You could serve some frosty cold bottles of beer from Sweet Something Designs’ colorful beer bottle cap tray. Deliciously meta!
A quirky backsplash makes me weak in the knees, so you know this bottle cap bonanza caught my eye. There are no DIY instructions on the Travel Obsession post, but I did spot some here, in case you want to get down to it.
I’m a recently-engaged lady (thank you, thank you) and these bottle cap placecards come from Style Me Pretty, my new fave source for wedding inspiration. The couple who had these at their wedding are beer connoisseurs (the groom’s dad even brews his own), so the idea is a sweet nod to their shared interest.
