Bottle Cap Party Garland + GIVEAWAY!

As part of E's school bus party, I created a bottle cap garland using bottle caps, chalkboard vinyl, and some twine. I simply cut the chalkboard vinyl to size sticking it to each bottle cap. I used a chalkboard pencil to write the letters, and glued each bottle cap to the twine with a little hot glue. It was really easy, but added a great little detail.

I experimented a little further, and created another version using paper flags and stickers


Check out this great box of bottle caps I found thrifting for $2!


I cut some decorative stickers from the SEI Family collection to fit the bottle caps and crafted little flags from one of the die cuts that had a fabulous rainbow stripe on the back. I think this little party garland could double just as well in a nursery, or little girl's room!

It is a tie between the diy doillie on the onesies and the paper wraps. It does look like fun to start out with kraft paper and decorate it for gift wrap. Thanks, Sarah, for sharing your projects this week.
