Recycled Bottle Cap Pocket Mirror
Recycled Bottle caps saved from your favorite brand of soda pop
Hot glue gun
1-inch round glass craft mirrors
This recycled or upcycled craft project shows you how to upcycle bottle caps into little pocket sized mirrors. Perfect for your purse or clutch bag.
These round craft mirrors can be found in most craft departments, or purchased through an online craft supply seller.
To begin, carefully twist off the bottle cap. Try to avoid bending any of the crimped edges inward, which can prevent the mirror from fitting into the cap.
Next, simply squeeze a bead of hot glue onto the center of the underside of the bottle cap. Then firmly press the 1” round glass craft mirror into place and hold for a few seconds. Finally, give the mirror a quick shine to remove any fingerprints left on the glass.
Since the glass soda bottles are usually sold in six packs, this makes a great craft project to do with your friends if you’re looking for a project with instant take-away value. These mirrors are so handy you’ll want to have one with you always, and so tiny that you always can.
