We had family in town last week and Sarah organized a really fun craft using bottle caps and washers. She had the kids decorate the inside of bottle caps with paper, stickers and gems and then glued a strong magnet on the back. She then hung a washer from some twine and the kids were able to magnetize their bottle caps to the washer necklaces. When they want a different look they can pull off the bottle cap and replace it with a different one. The kids had a blast!
Since we had to pull out the washers anyway, I thought I'd open up a steel stamping set that I bought about a year ago and have never used. I bought the set at Harbor Freight. The sets range from $5-$20. Relatively inexpensive and oh so entertaining.
Place the washer on concrete and stamp the letters with a hammer. It takes a little getting used to.
Some of the washers had old paint on them already.
Others I rubbed with gel stain or white paint after stamping.
