How to Make a Double Sided Rainbow Bottle Cap Necklace

I wanted to make a rainbow bottle cap necklace but couldn’t decide which rainbow sticker design I wanted to use to make it.

I took a page from Mother Nature who sent us not only real live in the sky rainbows after a record breaking rainy summer last year but they were often double rainbows. How cool!

2 designs. 2 sides to a bottle cap. Why not make a double sided bottle cap necklace?

Let’s do it!

Step by step how to make it tutorial

1. Use the craft paint and paint brush to paint the inside of the bottle cap blue if desired. Allow the paint to dry.

2. Place one rainbow sticker on the front of the bottle cap.

3. Carefully cover the sticker with a thin coat of Dimensional Magic. Pop any air bubbles in the Dimensional Magic with the straight pin and let it dry over night.

This is what it looks like when you fill the bottle cap with a thick coat of Dimensional Magic after it dries. Yuck! Don’t do this.

5. Use the bottle cap punch to make a hole in the top of the bottle cap.

6. Hole one side of the jump ring with a pair of jewelry pliers in one and and use a pair of jewelry pliers in your other hand to twist open the jump ring.
