Bottle Cap Magnets

July 15, 2011

These bottle cap magnets are to hang on your fridge. You can design them any way you like, with words or even pictures.

Approximate Time: 10 minutes



  1. Paint the bottle cap with your acrylic paint. I usually use a grey acrylic paint or a black one. Paint the inside and outside of the cap. Let dry.

  2. Glue a magnet on the back of bottle cap. You can get the little circle magnets at dollar stores.
  3. Place your magazine cut out picture, regular picture, or words inside the bottle cap. Glue them down with Gorilla glue or a glue gun.

  5. Let dry for about 20 minutes.
  6. Now you are ready to put them on a magnetic surface.
Several magnets made from bottlecaps.

Note: If you wish to make bigger magnets, you can use jar lids, just use a bigger magnet on the back.

Great idea. I am thinking, however, you might do well not to paint the bottle cap where you will be gluing the magnet. With my luck, I would go to take the bottle cap off the fridge, and the paint would let go and I would be left holding the empty bottle cap!

Makes me think we need to buy some soda pop in the old-fashioned kind of bottles and get some caps! Maybe this is a good excuse to make root beer floats? :) Thanks for sharing!

I am trying to make red hat magnets out of plastic soda caps. I can't figure out the best way to do it. Can you help me with some suggestions?

You will need rare earth magnets to glue inside. they are not expensive and they will be strong enough to exert their magnetism through the plastic cap. You could also just glue craft magnets to the top of the cap. Then use craft paint to paint them red. Good luck. sounds like fun.

This is a fun way to make a magnet out of a bottle cap. One of mine from a ways back. You can use fancy red fabric or lace, purple flowers and a pink ribbon?? Hope this helps.

You could use balsa wood or a sturdy cardboard (round ones larger than the cap) as the brim. Use a good glue to affix the lid to wood or cardboard then use a thin magnet affixed to the wood/cardboard (add last). Spray paint the hat red and embellish.
