Create a tabletop decor

If you have a plain table at home, update its look by crafting a colorful tabletop. Pain the caps then affix them using wood glue or cement. You may ask help from a carpenter, too.

Update an old mirror

Aside from revarnishing or repainting an old mirror, you may decorate your piece using old bottle caps that you've collected. Just like the process of giving your frames a new look, you may simply glue the caps to serve as a quirky border.
