Last week I shared an idea packed post, with over 25 ways to use recyclables as craft supplies. After compiling all of those posts we were super inspired to get crafty. This week, the weather took a turn for the cool and rainy around here, the perfect time to pull out some craft supplies. We gathered up some plastic lids, the drill, beads, markers and some string…the end result was super cute kid made plastic bottle cap necklaces.

waxed linen string, or any string
After the glue had a chance to dry, a little, it was time to drill holes for the string. We drilled 2 small holes near the top of the lid. My daughter even tried her hand at drilling. * To make drilling a little easier and safer take these steps. Place the lid on a thick wooden cutting board and drill down into the edge of the lid. Know your child…give your child a chance to try operating the drill…lend a helping hand.
This was a perfect rainy day activity for my daughter. I love her design ideas. She’s a little obsessed with owls, so it was no surprise that she made an “I love owls” necklace. I especially love her mood necklace…one side has a full heart and the flip side has a broken heart. She will flip it, depending on her mood. Thankfully the full heart is out right now. Phew!
