The ease of this craft is matched only by its whimsy. A DIY necklace made from Maker’s Mark bottle caps. And you need only one item  to begin making this rockin’ little necklace.

No, I didn’t say drink it. Just save the bottle cap. (Actually, I like the bottles with the taller red caps for this project.) Oh, and you don’t need one. You need three (caps, that is). 

Other supplies needed: black nylon jewelry cording, thin wire, and a drill.

step 1

Using a size 5/64 drill bit (just a tiny one, if you have to guess), make 2 holes about 3/4″ apart, in each of the 3 bottle caps.

step 2

Place the caps together as shown below and run a piece of wire through the holes to secure them. Pull the wire tightly then twist and secure the ends.

step 3

Make a large hole in the 2 places shown below, using a slightly larger drill bit. (large enough for the cord to thread through.)

step 4

Cut the nylon jewelry cord to your desired length and fold in half. Thread the 2 ends through the holes and knot.

And that’s it. Now you just need to arrange an outing with friends, so you can wear you Maker’s Mark conversation piece.

I actually helped my friend make this for her pal whose drink of choice is (you guessed it) Maker’s Mark
