So i have been collecting and saving beer bottle caps for the past 2 years and my collection has outgrown the container i was keeping them in, and now im starting to wonder what i am going to do with all of these. I have almost 1000, 945 to be exact (yes i keep track of them in an excel spread sheet) and i was wondering if my fellow headfiers had any creative suggestions to what i should do with them. I am leaning towards some kind of art project mosaic or something. I have enough to cover about a 3ft x 3ft square. here is a pic to give you a general idea for how big the collection is:

i look forward to your ideas

I would separate them by color and then mount them that way. Kind of like a beer cap rainbow?


unfortunately rainbows probably don't go over big with my college buddies

coffee table.

take some plywood and cover the bottle caps on it (design it whatever you feel like) and use beer bottles as the legs.
