DIY Bottle Cap Coasters



How cute are these bottle cap coasters?! My mom made my brother bottle cap coasters for a Christmas gift using caps from all his favorite beers and I just loved them! Well, I don't drink beer or soda, so I didn't have colorful caps to use, however, using caps from drinks you like definitely give these coasters a personalized feel and look. These coasters are super easy to make at home and make a great gift... especially for that special man in your life.


You'll only need three supplies for this craft...
  • Bottle caps {check out these custom caps}
  • Cork board {like this}
  • Hot glue
You'll need to buy or collect enough caps for the amount of coasters you plan to make, so make sure to plan ahead... I bought 2 packs of 16 caps that made 4 coasters. Design the caps on the cork board and draw markings so you know where to cut. Cut out the shape you want for your coaster using a knife. 



If you're using store bought caps like the ones I used, you can apply the hot glue directly to the cap. If you use caps you've collected, you might need to cut pieces of cork board and place them inside the caps so that you can glue the caps directly to the board. And that's it, you'll be done and have some pretty amazing coasters to use!
