Over the last couple months I have been collecting bottle caps of all sizes. My husband just shook his head as he watched them pile up. But finally I got them out and we made an ornament for our tree.
I found 3 varying sizes and we painted them white. I cut out a hat with some extra craft foam I had. I hot glued the bottle caps together, glued the hat on the top, some twine on the back for a hook and using sharpie markers, I made the eyes, nose, mouth and buttons. Mr. C loves hanging ornaments on the tree.
Awhile back I got a great deal from Amazon on Q-tips. We have a LOT of Q-tips at our house. With all these extra q-tips, I decided we could use them in a craft project. I originally wanted to make a santa or snowman with cotton balls, but I actually don’t have any cotton balls at my house right now. Maybe we can plan on that for next year!
I put some glue on one of the circles and we placed 6 q-tips around the circle.
Then we glued another circle on the top to ensure the q-tips would all stay put. This is the center of our snowflake.
We went around from the center creating the other edges of our snowflake, gluing circles at all the places the q-tips would meet. When we were all finished, this was our final product!
I put them on our glass paned doors that are between our living room and our family room. They turned out great and we had a great time making them.
