    Upcycled, recycled, repurposed collectables of the future dog Figures made from Beer and pop bottle metal top. The pair made me laugh soon as I saw them, someone must have a great imagination and these will last forever.

    For the purposes of identification we can call them red face and Orange face. Can you imagine the amount of beer consumed to make these! I've seen music sticks from bottle tops but never these!

      These are GREAT. When I was working (retired now), there was an older gentleman who would come to our company and ask for our empty soda cans to recycle into bi-winged airplanes ~ you know, those old double-winged airplanes from WWI. He sold them for $10 each. I actually bought one, I thought they were so unique and well-made. Gave it away later to a good friend, though, so don't have it anymore to post here (dang it!!!). [;>)))

      It isn't really that much beer. I'm embarrassed but I have at least these many in my stash "waiting to be made into something great again". Rose's bottle cap man was so cute. Nevada - do you remember they also made hats (with crocheting) and handbags all linked together? I love art from found objects.

      valentino97 >>> Hey, yeah, I remember the bottle cap hats! Man, how many moons ago was that?!!?

      Not so long ago - 70's? Dads drank beer and Moms crocheted them into hats? Not my parents, they weren't very artsy, which was hard for me growing up but we all laugh about it now.
