I have a ton of plastic Mountain Dew soda bottle caps I forgot to send in for their latest promotion. I've looked online, but I can't locate something I can do or make with these plastic caps. I see plenty of projects with metal caps, but not plastic. Any ideas?

You could make a checker board set and use them up. (03/06/2009)
If you enjoy crafts or have children who enjoy crafts, go to the library and borrow "Bottlecap Little Bottlecap" by Michelle Stitzlein. The book contains ideas for fun crafts with bottle caps. Her creativity is amazing! (03/06/2009)
flickr has some wonderful shots of recycled crafts. Get lovely shots of bottle cap pincushions.
I saw someone on TV make lawn ornament flowers out of butter/plastic container lids and the centers were bottle caps. You can make a mosaic picture out of all the colored bottle caps. I plan to drill holes into the center and use old metal wire hangers to create a trellis on my lanai. I am going to paint it white. (03/07/2009)
How about drilling holes in the caps and stringing them on a pipe cleaner? Glue on googly-eyes and you have an instant caterpillar! (03/07/2009)
Donate them to your local school. I collected some and put them in Ziploc bags and use them for Bingo markers for the games we play at school. (03/07/2009)
My Easter Hat Magnet craft has been submitted, but here's a sneak peek at the photo! Poor But Proud!! (03/11/2009)
