How To Make A Bottle Cap Birdcage


Linda Peterson demonstrates how to make a bottle cap birdcage in this video.  This is a really cute upcycling idea and a great way to reuse bottle caps!

You’ll find out how to make the birdcage but Linda doesn’t show the shaping of the large heart at the top of the birdcage or when she adds her embellishments.

This would make a really cute pendent for a necklace or a keyring 🙂
