There are a lot of small, random non-recyclable materials that I tend to collect, hoping that one day I’ll have a spark of creativity and figure out what to do with them. For a while, it was toilet paper rolls, and now it’s bottle caps. I can’t tell you how many of these I have accumulated, because the local recycling center will take the bottles, but not the caps. Thank goodness there are a lot of people out there with more ingenuity than I have!
Etsy seller cpstudios made this gorgeously simple abstract sculpture from an array of multi-colored bottle caps. I’m amazed by how great it looks! The average person walking in a room would have no idea. The bottle caps are slightly more obvious when looking at them from an angle, but on the wall, the view would be head-on. I really need to grab an old picture frame and make one of these for myself. But if you’d rather not collect bottle caps, you can own this one for just $29.
