Have you ever bought craft supplies on Amazon because they were wicked cheap but you had to buy like 4 million of that item? I decided to make bottle cap magnet lady bugs because what the heck else was I going to do with several pounds worth of tiny circular magnets? Seriously! I bought them for a project, used 3 and now am left with so many magnets I don’t have a clue how to start using them all up! Since spring is coming and I am a huge fan of lady bugs, I decided to spend my morning making bottle cap magnet lady bugs! We are always sticking things on the refrigerator and I’m not sure you can ever have enough magnets in the house! If you decide to give this upcycled craft a try, let me know how it turns out. I am including Amazon affiliate links to the supplies I used if you need to do some shopping.
How to Make Bottle Cap Magnet Lady Bugs
red spray paint (I used Krylon short cuts)
black nail polish, permanent marker or fine tipped black paint pen
2 small googly eyes per magnet
hot glue gun
1/2 inch diameter small round magnets
Spray paint magnets red. You may need multiple coats of paint. Let paint dry between each coat.
Once the paint is dry, add a lady bug pattern as shown using your black writing instrument of choice
Once your black pattern is dry, glue on (or stick on if self adhesive) your googly eyes
Flip the bottle cap over. Hot glue a small round magnet to the inside of the cap.
