As I'm first on the hop list I'm going to kick off with a red project - I seem to have a bit of a reputation for liking red spotted items so I thought I'd make a nice, simple necklace using a red spotted button!
Here's what you will need:
a bottle top
and not pictured, some silicone glue
Flatten the bottle top in a die cutting machine or get your other half to do it in a vice if you don't have a machine.
Drill a small hole in the top of the cap.
Add a jump ring.
Squeeze some silicone onto the back side of the button
Carefully place the button onto the bottle cap, pushing down gently and making sure none of the silicone squeezes out. Leave to dry then thread the chain through the jump ring and you're done.
Easy and effective.
Of course you don't have to add a button, you could add a stamped image, cover with glossy accents and add mirco beads for a bit of texture or even use an image from a magazine. It will need to be about 1" in diameter.
Note: you can buy flattened bottle caps in packs of 10 complete with hole drilled and jump ring added from a well known auction site.
Everyone who leaves a comment on my blog and becomes a follower is in with a chance of winning a small prize. I haven't decided exactly what yet, but I'm sure it will have something red and something spotted in it!
Thanks for reading. Now you need to hop along tomorrow to the next blog which is
Scraps of Sarah who will, no doubt, be using orange in her project.
Thanks for joining me and I hope you have a go at my little project. If you do, post me a link as I'd love to see what you make :)
