Directions
1. Lay your bottle caps face up on a piece of parchment paper or newspaper. You'll need seven caps for each flower. Coat each bottle cap with your choice of paint.
(Tip: Arrange your caps into flower shapes and spray them that way so you know you have enough.)

2. Once your paint dries, arrange your caps into flowers.
(Tip: Use a different-colored center or alternate petal colors for an extra pop of color.)

3. Attach your caps together in a flower shape with hot glue. Lay out a coat of glue in a circle on the caps so they are essentially attached to a string of hardened glue.

4. Once the glue dries, flip the flower over and attach the center to the middle of the petals with hot glue. Glue the flower to a skewer or chopstick, and allow it to dry.
