Keyrings aren't just for keeping all of your keys together and making them easier to find. Use keyrings to dress up a book bag, purse or jacket zipper. Create your own decorative keyring with a metal bottle cap. Add a picture to the inside of the bottle cap to make it more personal.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Metal bottle cap
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Cotton Swab
- Sandpaper (optional)
- Acrylic paint (optional)
- Drill bit
- Craft glue
- 5 Jump rings
- 2 Pairs of needle nose pliers
- Large split ring
Clear the inside of the bottle cap with a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to remove any sticky pop that may be left on the inside of the cap. Skip this step if you are using metal bottle caps from a craft store.
Sand the bottle top and cover it with a layer of acrylic paint. Give the bottle cap two coats if the first coat doesn't offer full coverage. Leave the bottle cap unsanded and unpainted if you like the design of the cap.
Drill a hole through the bottle cap on the side.
Trace the top of the bottle cap over the part of a picture that you would like inside the bottle cap. Attach the picture to the inside of the bottle cap with craft glue.
Link five jump rings together by gripping them with two pairs of needle nose pliers and pulling them apart. Then, use a pair of needle nose pliers to close them. Leave the last two jump rings in the chain open. Close one jump ring around the large split ring and the other jump ring after it is threaded through the hole in the bottle cap.
