Crafts for Mother’s Day!

Creating your own set of DIY Bottle Cap Photography Magnets only takes a few minutes and a bit of patience! To begin, gather these supplies:

Choosing photos to create your magnets can be tricky! But, by using photo editing software you can shrink any picture down to size. I had all of my pictures printed on two 4 x 6 photos for a total of 40 cents!

To shape your photos, use a coin that is the same size as the circumference of the inside of your bottle cap. I used a car wash token, but I am pretty sure a quarter would have worked as well!

Next, using your traced circles as a guide, cut your photos. Don’t get upset about small imperfections.

Place each circle photo into a bottle cap.

Next, mix your resin according to the package directions and then pour it onto the bottle caps. I used a plastic spoon to scoop and pour the resin so that I had more control. You could also just pour it straight from the cup.

Using your popsicle stick, gently push the photos down and release the air bubbles underneath so that the photos don’t float to the top of your resin. Don’t worry about the bubbles that are in the resin, they will slowly move upward and pop leaving a crystal clear finish!

Allow enough time for the resin to set completely before moving on. Follow the directions on the package of your resin. Mine took 6 hours to completely harden.

After your resin has set, adhere a magnet to the back of each bottle cap.
