Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Wondering what you can do with your empty Boylan glass bottles and caps? Here are a few fun crating ideas to help reuse and re-purpose our soda bottles. We are constantly tagged in photos of our bottles being re-purposed into beautiful flower vases and jewelry holders. Here are a few loyalists who have shared their photos with us to help inspire others:

Not only can our bottles be reused but so can our caps! Here are some crafty holiday inspired ideas to reduce, reuse, and recycle!

 

Boylan cap snowflake ornaments!

What you need:

  • Two Boylan Caps
  • One plastic snowflake ornament (dollar stores sell them in packs)
  • A hot glue gun

What you do:

  • Warm up your hot glue gun.
  • Align a Boylan cap directly in the middle of the snowflake. Make sure it is facing the right way according to where the lanyard on the snowflake is placed to hang on the tree.
  • Use the hot glue gun to attach the cap to the snowflake.
  • Repeat on the opposite side. Be sure to align both front and back caps so they match up and look like one.
  • Hang on your tree or fireplace mantel and enjoy!
 

Boylan Cap Wreath Ornaments!

What you need:

  • Nine Boylan Caps
    • (Optional: Use eighteen to replicate the backside and hide the inner part of the cap)
  • One bow
    • (Optional: Use a second bow if you decide to decorate the backside)
  • Thread of your choice (To create the lanyard)
  • A hot glue gun

What you do:

  • Warm up your hot glue gun.
  • Grab a sheet of paper and either trace a circle or print one out.
    • Use this as a guide to connect your Boylan caps in a perfect circle.
  • Use the hot glue gun to attach the caps side by side.
    • Optional: repeat on the opposite side. Be sure to align both front and back caps so they match up and look like one.
  • Attach a looped circle with your choice of thread.
    • You can hot glue the lanyard in place so it does not shift throughout the wreath or leave as is.
  • Attach bow where you wish or where you glued to hide the glue.
  • Hang on your tree or fireplace mantel and enjoy!
