I really think that crafting with recycled bottle caps has some great potential, though honestly I'm not sure that this plastic bottle cap snowflake even deserves this post, but I seem to be on a snowflake binge, so there you have it. And there is something to be said for showing the not so successful crafting adventures too! I'll never show you my closets, but this little bottle cap snowflake, why not? This is an example of the type of project that seems like a good idea at the time, but when you're finished making it you have no idea what to do with it! (I hot glued the bottle caps onto the unprinted side of a cereal box and then cut the whole thing out.)
You see, this little creation just didn't fit into any spot in my house when I walked around with it this afternoon, which is why I ended up photographing it on my hallway floor! So maybe we should just talk about my floor, which I picked out 4 1/2 years ago and still love. You can't tell from this photo, but the 35cm wide tiles were placed on the diagonal creating a regal palace meets Alice In Wonderland type feeling.... it saved me from worrying about decorating the hall because the blank sand-toned walls look just lovely and spare paired with this floor! If you're gonna be daring in your choice of flooring or paint color, I always advise doing it in a transitional space like a hall or entryway.....
Oh and as for the bottle cap idea, well one person's mediocre idea can be the fuel for someone else's genius, so if you come up with a way to make snowflakes (or anything else) from bottle caps that knocks your socks off, let me know!
Truthfully, now that I think about it, this creation could look good in a vintage Americana setting, like on the yellow walls of our little toy room, paired with my red plaid vintage lunch boxes.....so maybe there is some hope....nah, I'm movin' on to the next project, see you there!
