Ok, this might be a little weird for some of you. I’m a gum chewer. I chew Xylitol gum regularly because it prevents and can heal tooth decay. However I like to chew gum and not have a burst of flavor each time so I’ll save my gum over a few days for re-chewing. Those who do this “get it”. Those who don’t are likely grossed out at this point.
I finally came up with the idea to use a cap of a bottle. It worked great! Being someone who likes to make my home and spaces special and unique, I decided to fancy up my cap a little. So for all you gum chewers and savers out there… this one’s for you!
- Soda bottle lid
- Paint or fancy paper.
- Jewels etc.
- Glue Gun
Cut a strip of fancy paper to fit around the edge of your cap. Hot glue gems on.
You can also paint the lids. I spray painted mine then added some dimensional puffy paint.
I cut a small piece of foil (wax paper would also work) to place inside the cap. I can then change it out if it gets too icky. A small dab of hot glue will hold it in place yet allow you to remove it fairly easily.
