This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!

In which we did the project

Here it is!! The project that we have all been waiting for. ¬†As you can see, we made Andie’s initials out of beer caps and being such a sport I’m going to tell you how it was done.

 

Collect the beer caps (the prettier the better)

Wash the beer caps (they stink … of BEER)

Use needle nose pliers to open the sides of the caps (or else they’ll just smoosh and not flatten all the way)

Smash the caps on a steel plate (which I had from work but you can just use something else)

… with a rubber mallet (so you don’t screw up the pretty cap)

Order some letters (I did this over the internet)

Spray paint them black (that is actually up to you … Andie didn’t want wood showing through)

Glue on the caps (with a glue gun … or two)
