St. Patrick’s Day Beer Cap Wreath

I’m so happy to be back for my second post at My Crafty Spot! If you missed my first post here, I’m Melissa and you can always find me over at A Prudent Life. I’d love you to pop over and say hi!

About 8 years ago, I realized we should be saving bottle caps for future DIY projects. We keep a container for them in a kitchen drawer with the bottle opener. When it gets full, the caps get divided by color family and stored in the craft room. A big wall art project is in the works, but I decided to use some of our collection for a great St.Patrick’s Day project. It was so easy!


  • 12″ Wire Wreath Form (about $3)
  • Hot Glue Gun or Other Thick Adhesive
  • Bottle Caps (I used 56)

Materials For Beer Cap Wreath

I considered wrapping the frame in burlap ribbon, thinking the caps would better adhere to it. I did a dry run before gluing the ribbon to the frame. It wasn’t the look I envisioned. After trying and vetoing about 5 other kinds of ribbon, it was time to test going ribbon-less! I used hot glue to attach one cap directly to the frame and it worked!

Before I attached any others, I planned my design for the inner and outer loops. I ended up doing a brighter green on the inside with darker green, gold, and black around the outside. One thing I LOVE about this project is that every wreath will be totally unique!

Easy Wood Shim Pallet Art

Hello again!  I’m Katie from View From The Fridge, and I’m so excited to be back this month with an easy St. Patrick’s Day craft.  I’m not sure about you, but I still love pallet art.  AND … I love it even more when there is no sawing, cutting, nails, or screws involved!

The secret?  Wood shims.  They’re cut to size.  They’re super cheap, and they’re easy to paint and work with.  The shims came 42 to a pack, so I got just a little carried away and made three pallets.  I happened to buy mine from Lowes … for $3.87!  Not bad for three pallets!
