Last week I went away. I went away from work, from kids and from life. I needed this escape and thankfully I had a few friends pull together an amazing road trip to a beautiful lake cabin. Talk about healing. We hulled up in this cabin and enjoyed the fresh air, belly laughs, fall colors, sleeping in, all the snacks and SO MANY CRAFTS!
One of the crafts that we did was this adorable Bottle Cap Flower Wall Art. Crafting is therapeutic and having this fun piece of art up in my bedroom is a great reminder for opportunities for new blooms, even in this exhausting season of life.
Make Your Own Bottle Cap Flower Wall Art
One of my friends gathered all of the materials for this craft and her hubby even cut the boards and stained them for us. Even with the supplies for four of us, it was a craft that was easy to travel with. As you venture on your crafting time make sure you think outside of the flowers – you could do all kinds of designs if flowers are not your favorite.
For the four of us, we decided to stick with the flowers and we all ended up with different versions which made it even more fun! This craft was perfect to enjoy on the deck lakeside too! Time to get creative!
1. Start by preparing the board. Ours was already sanded and stained but to add a little extra matte look we used Mod Podge on the board – painted all sides and corners.
2. While the Mod Podge is drying, you will start working on your stems. Cut the twine into three different lengths depending on how large your board is. Keeping in mind that no two flowers are the same!
3. Once the twine is cut, paint the twine with the green pain using the foam brush. Set aside and let dry.
4. Time to start planning your petals and leaves. You will need five bottle caps for the leaves – we did not have any green bottle caps so we painted ours. You will need three bottle caps for the flower centers. You will need twelve bottle caps for the petals on EACH flower. 44 bottle caps in total.
5. Once you have planned out your bottle caps you will need to bend the flower petals in half using the pliers. Do this carefully and slowly for best results.
6. Plan out your flowers by placing them on the board and design your art. Once all planned, using a hot glue gun glue all of the pieces to the board.
7. Let hot glue dry and double check to make sure they are secure before hanging up your new Bottle Cap Flower Art!
Adorable right?? And while it will take a bit of time and concentration, it was the perfect craft to do with friends. I loved seeing our different ideas and creativity shine through. Funny how a simple afternoon on the deck with bottle caps, paint and friends can create some lasting memories!
