Earlier this week as I was recycling water bottles (we have to remove the caps/lids when recycling), I started to brainstorm projects we could do with caps.
This bottle cap flower is the second project from our recycled bottle caps. The first was a bottle cap caterpillar.

Supplies for Bottle Cap Flower:
Cost: under $20 if you purchase everything on this list, but most things you will have on hand or can substitute items
Directions for Bottle Cap Flower:
Ages: preschool and older
1. Ahead of time use a glue gun and glue the 4 bottle caps together to form a diamond. My kids like to use this glue gun to help with projects.
2. Use a 1 inch circle craft punch and cut our five pieces of cardstock or use the bottle caps as template.
3. Paint craft stick with green paint. We did 2 coats letting it dry between coats.
4. Use a glue stick and glue cardstock circles to top of the 4 bottle caps. Glue one circle to the middle.
5. Using glue gun, glue the bottle caps to the craft stick.
6. Cut 2 leaf shapes out of green foam paper and glue to either side of craft stick.
