Man Cave Bottlecap Clock
If your looking 4 a Man's gift thats different and handmade by you, and maybe
you just had a party and your throwing out bottlecaps like craz... "STOP, Ihave
an idea for those, lol.
This project took me about 35 minutes to complete not including drying time & u
know me, i'm always in a hurry and on to the next thing. Im sure some of yours will
look better than mine simply because your taking your time, but at least you have
the general gist of the idea, now right.
What you need:
A large glass plate
A Cheap Clock with a flat rim around it (purchased mine at Walmart for $3.97)
Bottle caps (these can be free if you drink beer out of a bottle)
(but i purchased mine thru amazon, 100 for $2, since I dont drink)
A bottle of Super glue
A small hand saw ( your gonna feel so handy, haha!)
Use your screwdriver to loosen all screws. Then remove the glass and outer rim.
Now this is the tricky part. Take your saw and saw downto the clock flat
base of the outer rim. Repeat this a few times sawing about 2 inches. Then using
your Thumbs for leverage break off the each 2 inch piece, for the most part,
if your lucky, you should have an 1/8 or 1/4 inch of flat black rim to adhere to
TIP: dont 4get to keep some nail polish remover handy, to remove unwanted
Next super glue the clock face to the plate, I glued mine to the top side but you
could do it either way.
Then start gluing your bottlecaps around the clock until completed. Pay close
Attention to how the bottlecaps are going on for a more dressier look, or to keep it
easy just glue randomly with no particular design.
Let dry. Then wrap or hang of course!
Your man will be so impressed that you used a saw, and thought of him by taking
time to make a homemade gift. You'll probably get a dinner out of it, maybe even
a proposal, ha!
Keep it Easy!
