Bottle Cap Necklaces TUTORIAL + free Printable {Guest: Kiki Creates}

Hi everyone! My name is Kiki and you can find me over at Kiki Creates.  At Kiki Creates you can find projects, tutorials and freeprintables galore.  I even have some cute little leprachaun paper dolls for free to celebrate St. Patty’s day.  In addition to my blog, I have a fun little Etsy shop where I sell fun prints for the home.  I’d be honored to have you come on over to check them out!

I’m thrilled to be here today to share a fun little project you can do in just a few minutes! Most of my projects are inspired in some way by my 4 little munchkins and this one is no different.
A few days ago, my daughter’s best friend turned the all important age of 3.  My little girl has been going around the house for weeks now saying that Jemma is her best friend, so I knew exactly what we should do for her present.
 Here it is all wrapped up ready to go:
And on the inside? A sweet gift from my daughter to her…
Perfect for best friends, right?!
While I was designing up the little 1″ circle designs, I figured I’d make a few for me too.  I mean, really, who doesn’t need a little reminder each day:
bottlecap necklace
And I have a son who was just baptized and this made a perfect addition to his new scripture bag!
Would you like some too?
To make a bottlecap necklace, you simply need:
bottle caps and epoxy stickers…here is an example
a necklace chain (you can find these at any craft stores)
hot glue
this fun download
Simply print and cut out the circles. (A 1″ circle punch works perfectly). Adhere the epoxy sticker on the paper design. Place a small amount of hot glue on the paper back and push it right down into the bottle cap.  Place it on the necklace (or key chain, zipper pull, etc.) You are done! So simple, right?!
Now go and find the perfect someone to give them to.
Thanks for having me, Linda.

    Hi Kiki!
    I love these! They are so cute. I am very interested in trying to make them for my group of Young Women for their New Beginnings night. I noticed the CTR charms…so, I wondered if you would be willing to make a small pattern for the new 2013 theme…Stand Ye In Holy Places? I hope I am not presumptuous in asking, but you are so talented and I haven’t the first clue about how to even make a design like this. Even if you could give me some clues or hints about how to make a design like that? Thanks so much! And, thanks for sharing your talent. I am thinking stocking stuffers for my little girls.

    Hello. I love this! I was wondering is there any way to make these images at home yourself? Can you let me know how to get started? Thank you!

    Hi! Thanks for a great tutorial! I am looking to make some of these for Christmas gifts! I was wondering how you went about designing the designs. I want to make a few in my niece’s dance team colors for her and her friends, but I can’t figure out how to design them in 1″ circles! Any help would be awesome! Thanks!!!

    Hi! Thank you for this awesome tutorial :) Can you tell me where I can find the necklaces? I need the ball chain style, like in your photos. Thank you for your help!

    Hello~ I love these! Did you have to drill a hole in the cap and buy the little circle pieces to loop through it? Or did you buy them like that? If so, where did you get those caps?? Thank you!
