Beer + a crafting mind = one amazing reversible bracelet

What’s better than drinking on a Saturday night? Making awesome accessories out of your favorite beer trash!

Back in August my husband and I spent a long weekend in Seattle. While the hunt for some good Washington microbrews went unsettled, I did find an amazing PBR style pilsner that had my name on it. Smooth, light and easy to drink was the name of the game that weekend, and the winner was Rainier Beer aka “Vitamin R.” Not only did this beer satisfy me, but the bottle caps kept us entertained throughout the night.

You see friends, picture puzzles, one of Gods gifts to bored human-beings, are cleverly placed on the undersides of each bottle cap. While sitting in a dark, damp dive bar three beers in and too lazy to walk through the rain that poured outside, puzzles were our little bored savors. Each pop of a bottle cap exploded into delicious mouth-watering beer foam and the pure pleasure of deciphering pictures.

A couple of beers in the puzzles were easy to solve. Wasted; well, you can only imagine, haha.

Get it?

No Time Like the Present! (ahahahahaha, so hilarious… not really. But after a couple beers things can get pretty silly.)

Five beers deep that drunken Saturday an amazing idea hit me! Why not use my new favorite beer, which I can only find in Washington, to make a cool accessoy to remind myself of my stellar 5-day weekend?

Two months later, I finally got around to doing it.

Challenge #4: Turning Rainier Beer bottle caps, that would easily be tossed in the trash, into a cool, quick bracelet.

Materials: Bottle caps, gold close jump rings, gold clasps, hammer, one nail, and pliers.
