Bottle caps are just one of those difficult-to-throw-away things.  They’re so colorful and fun, and there are so many crafty things you can do with them!  Jenny from A Bird in the Hand used a handful of them to make a funky flower that she mounted on a chopstick so it can serve as a plant stake.  Too cute!  You could also turn one into a brooch, or hang a grouping of them on the wall.  Can you think of other uses for them?  [how to make a recycled bottle cap flower]
