Design Fridge Flowers from Recycled Plastic Cups

Fridge flower

Watch your fridge burst into bloom with flowers made from recycled plastic caps!

What You Need

  • About 33 small plastic bottle caps
  • About 2 medium-sized plastic caps or lids
  • 80 clear adhesive or glue dots (1/2 inch in diameter and 1/8 inch thick; 3D, high-tack kind)
  • One old 45 rpm phonograph record (found at flea markets or antique stores) or a lid from a plastic container of ice cream. For a smaller flower, use an old CD.
  • Several small magnets (about 6; available in craft stores)

What You Do

  1. Prepare the record or CD
    Attach the magnets to the back of the record with a few glue dots.
  2. Design your flower
    Create a design with the caps on the front side of the record.
  3. Make the flower petals
    Attach the caps to the record—or to each other, as shown—with glue dots.
