Bottle cap magnets

Want to know how to make cute magnets out of recycled stuff? You know you do. Well, here's how:

1. Save your pretty bottles caps (and bottles). Or have your friends save them for you, if you don't drink the pop with the pretty caps.
2. Take your vinyl shower curtain liner-cut a slit in the little pockets on the bottom, that hold the magnets. (You don't need them anyhow.) Remove magnets.
3. Place a dab of hot glue inside the bottle caps and stick the little round magnet on it. Your magnet will not touch whatever you are putting it on-refrigerator or whatever. But it should be strong enough to stick anyhow. The chunkier the magnet, the stronger it will be.
4. You're done. See, that was easy!

Stay tuned for what to do with the bottle. Exciting stuff!

Love those bottle cap magnets. They are so sweet. I didn't realize you used the magnets from a shower curtain. I need a new one so I'll have to do that. You need a job with Real Simple magazine because they have that awesome section of new uses for everyday things. I think they would love this one!!!
