Bottle Cap Mobile

While browsing online I stumbled upon a neat repurpose for bottle caps from Pia Chaib on flickr. This is especially great if you are an avid drinker of beverages with metal bottle caps or know someone else who is and wouldn’t mind starting a stash for you.

The caps make a cool, artsy mobile or wind chime when strung together. Of course, this is just decorative and not meant to be hung where babies or young children can touch it. All the pretty colors and patterns might entice them to grab hold!

  1. You can also purchase a large bag (for CHEAP, like 144 for under $5) clean, new, unbent, matching ones from your local homebrew shop.

  2. That’s really cool. I like the reuse of the old metal piece up top too.

  3. finally something to do with all those beer tops that I keep finding around my house!

  4. I’ve been looking for a mobile for bottle tops for awhile and this one is really nice! I’m thinking of using an old lampshade (with fabric taken off) for the top and then somehow stringing the caps together.
