I remember making these when I was younger! (Although it was probably more my mother making them and me making a mess!) I love them :) Thanks for the easy tutorial.


Thats so clever! Wonder if I can get my man to drink up a few beers...lol


What a great idea, thanks for sharing!

Cute idea. My son and his college buddies collected beer bottle caps for years and made an entire tabletop out of them. It's pretty amazing, but a trivet is more my speed.

Gudrun Ryberg

It would make a great gift!

What a great idea! and very 'do-able'! I'll have to start saving bottle tops (or ask for some at the local pub!)

Such a great idea! These are adorable. Thanks for the tutorial!


What a great idea! These must be twist-off caps? They look very flat. Thanks for the tutorial!

What a neat idea, I may just give it a try!

Very fun - I've never made yo-yo's & had seen 2 projects for them RECENTLY - a sign??


Environmentally friendly, useful and cute. Fantastic.

Those are really cute, now I need to find some bottle caps! Thanks for sharing.


Well now, how clever is that? I would be worried that the fabric would get something spilled on it and ruined but that's just my slightly OCD side coming out, LOL. That's really neat though, thanks for sharing!


This is adorable!!! I have to make one :)


Now I know what to do with all those beer bottle caps that we get when we have company. Now I need a clever, quilty way to recycle wine corks.

Well now that is Darn cute! Now to get DH out of the habit of folding his beer caps in half before throwing them in the trash.. hmmm re-training a man.. that may be the hard part.


This is such an awesome idea, I am totally making a couple for this year!!


Nice way to recycle and have something useful and cute. Thanks for the how-to.


I remember this type of trivet from my childhood--it was purple crochet and fashioned into the shape of grapes with green crocheted leaves. wow! what a fantastic update!!
