12 Days of Holiday Inspiration - Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 of the 12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by the "Inspiration Crew".
We're just a group of online crafty blog friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 12-day event to provide you with tons of Holiday Inspiration.
We're making crafty projects using products we like and some of us are even offering prizes. Check each blog and the information there for what prizes are being offered and when the winners will be announced on that blog.
Today I decided to change it up a bit and create something more in the altered art realm. I love bottle cap art and finally created my first piece. I found a free printable vintage Holiday image and sized it to fit my 1.5" bottle cap. I punched out the circle image and glued it to the inside of the cap. I wrapped a small piece of silver pipe cleaner around the inside. With a cropadile I punched a small hole in the top and bottom of the bottle cap and added  jump rings. The top jump ring allows for a ribbon or an ornament holder to hang the ornament. The bottom jump ring allowed me to add some beading.

 
It's hard to see but I used a clear Wink of Stella Brush to highlight Santa's hat, tree and belt! Here's a close-up ...
 
 
I will definitely create more bottle cap art in the future. The caps come in many sizes,  up to 4.0".
As usual, check out all the blogs of the crafty participants below for lots of Inspiration! I will see you all tomorrow for a new Holiday project!
