Farm Fresh Milk Bottle Cap Flowers

A few weeks ago Connie from Crafty Goodies so generously offered a couple of her readers a set of her stamped vintage milk bottle caps, so I jumped right on the offer and emailed Connie telling her I had a plan for them.  I was originally thinking about gluing a magnet on the back of each one, but after I received them I thought they needed to become something a little more whimsical.....

The best part was that I already had everything I needed.  I looked around the house for something to use as a vase, and discovered this "milk" glass salt shaker was the perfect candidate.  I added a piece of vintage trim, a tiny silky flower, and a rhinestone around the top.

These are the milk bottle caps Connie from Crafty Goodies sent me.  You can check out how she transformed these blanks in her blog post here.

Pieces of paper flowers and vintage doilies from a flea market were glued to the back of the milk caps.

I simply doubled some craft wire for stability and wrapped it in floral tape.  A little Tacky Glue holds the wire in place on back of each flower.

Farm fresh!!
