Bottle Cap Coasters {Craft Tutorial}

Do you want an easy craft for the men with bars in your life?  I have a super fun and easy one for you all!  

Bottle Cap Coasters

Now I made my coasters for an adult friend, so I used alcoholic beverage caps, but you could use any soda caps that you fancy!

You will just need a few supplies:
Cheap wooden coasters
A wall to surround your coasters (I used a piece of PVC pipe)
Grout (I used a light colored hard grout, but you can use any color)
Bottle caps

Read the instructions on your grout.  Make sure you know the volumes to mix and your set times.  Go ahead and mix some up.

I glued my bottle caps onto my cheap coasters so they wouldn't move around.

Then I placed the walled PVC around the coaster (it was the perfect size), and started spooning in the grout.

Once it was all filled, I used my finger to spread the grout evenly and clear off the tops.

I let that set to where it was firm but not fully set and took it out of the mold, then I used a damp towel to wipe off the excess grout from the top of the caps.

Once they fully dried, they had this awesome textured look and the caps were secure inside the grout.  I handed these out at Christmas time with a pack of Reinbeers and my guy friends loved it!
