Craft Project: Bottlecap Christmas Tree

An easy craft re-using bottlecaps and promotional magnets.

Approximate Time: Less than 1 hour


  • 12 bottlecaps (beer bottle caps are the same size as my punch)
  • Christmas wrapping paper
  • Mod Podge
  • Liquitex glossy varnish
  • glitter (optional)
  • sheet magnet (I reused a promotional magnet)
  • hot glue/gun
  • 1 inch hole punch


I chose a wrapping paper that had a variety of items to punch out. I punched 12 1 inch circles from the wrapping paper and used Mod Podge to glue circles inside the caps.


Once dry, I squeezed a small amount of varnish into each cap, then lightly sprinkled glitter while it was still wet. While the caps dried, I used a different wrapping paper and Mod Podge on the sheet magnet. After everything was dry, I used hot glue to glue the caps to the magnet in a Christmas tree shape.

I really like this craft because it is so versatile. It would work with Easter paper and make it in the form of egg, maybe or for birthdays with birthday paper in round shapes to make coasters for the birthday table. Thanks.
