D.I.Y. Bottle Cap Necklace Pendant

Make a Bottle Cap Necklace Pendant to match your Bottle Cap Earrings!

Crafted by Billie Jo.

Supplies

  • Bottle Caps
  • Jump Ring or Bale
  • 2 Needle Nose Pliers
  • Fiskars 1/16" Hand Punch
  • 1" Round Paper Punch
  • Glossy Accents
  • E-6000
  • Bottle Cap Images
  • Embellishments

We used Bottle Cap Images for this project, but you can use anything you would like to decorate your bottle cap necklace pendant, such as photos, magazines, patterned scrapbook paper, fabric and more.

1.  Apply a small amount of Glossy Accents inside the bottle cap.
2.  Use the round paper punch on the material of your choice to punch two 1" circles and firmly adhere it to the Glossy Accents inside of the bottle caps.
3.  Add any embellishments of your choice, such as rhinestones, glitter, beads, etc.
4.  Apply Glossy Accents completely over the top of each circle in the bottle caps.
5.  Set it aside to let dry.

There are two way to turn the bottle cap into a pendant: you can use a jump ring or a bale.

Adding a Jump Ring

Use the hand punch to puncture a hole at the top center of each bottle cap, then attach the jump ring using the pliers.

Adding a Bale

Apply E-6000 (or another strong adhesive) to the bale and firmly adhere it to the back of the bottle cap. Set it aside to let dry.

After you've turned your bottle cap into a pendant, add it to a ball chain or another type of necklace to wear it.
