Bottle Cap Picture Frame

Hello everyone! After a few days of celebrating with family, I decided to write a post on how to make these fun picture frames. I had made a few of these when we decided that they would make a perfect gift for the groomsmen in our wedding! They are pretty easy and fun to make 🙂

I had been collecting bottle tops for quite some time for various projects when I decided picture frames would be fun!

Materials needed:

  • Bottle caps
  • Wood paint (I used black)
  • Paint brush
  • Wooden picture frame (any size will work)
  • Wood glue (or any other crafting style glue, just make sure it dries clear)

Once you have all your materials, start by painting your picture frame black. I decided to use a wooden frame that holds a 4×6 photo. Make sure you choose a frame that has a thick area between the picture and the edge so you have plenty of room for your bottle caps. Also, you can choose any color – I went with black because it matches just about anything 🙂

Let the paint dry and then it is time to line up all the caps in the positions you want. This is probably my favorite part of the project 🙂 This is where you get to use your imagination. I made five frames for our wedding and not one is the same!

After you have it laid out how you want it’s time to start glueing. This step can get repetitive but the end project is worth it! Let the glue dry and then go back and touch up with the black paint and you are finished!

This is a fun and unique way to display all the different types of beers you have tried! And if you know someone like my husband, he enjoys having a reason to keep trying new beers 😉
