Who doesn’t enjoy a little friendly competition with the family? With this DIY portable bottle ring toss game, the family is sure to have a fun time! We are looking forward to pulling it out for our July 4th celebrations.
What you’ll need for this craft:
12-15 glass bottles
acrylic paint (optional: if you want to paint your crate)
Rust-Oleum Crystal Clean Enamel
nylon rope for making the rings
If it isn’t obvious at this point, I save what most people call “junk” so that we can upcycle with the boys. For this particular craft, I pulled out the stash of bottles that we’ve been saving for some time. I ended up using 15 bottles because that’s how many securely fit into my crate.
If your bottles still have the labels on them, it’s time to give them a little soak. I usually soak ours in very hot water for an hour or so. That helps the label easily pull off.
After labels have been removed and the jars dried, it’s time to paint. I prefer using Rust-Oleum paint on crafts like this. I didn’t use this on the white bottles and was a tad disappointed in the way they turned out.
I ended up giving them two coats of paint. Once the paint dried, I used Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear Enamel as the last step.
Where can I find a crate?
You purchase usually find a variety in the craft section of your local department store, craft stores, thrift stores, or even in you stash. The one I used for this DIY was an one I have had stored for some time in the garage.
How do I make the rings?
Take some polypropylene rope and measure the length you need. Once cut, melt the ends together. That’s it. The rings are now ready to toss.
