I love JM and I check it out everyday, but this is my first time posting. Yesterday I bought a whole can of vintage milk caps (probably a couple of hundred)...they are 1 1/4" diameter.  I need ideas on something fun to do with them. Help!

I like the idea of a milk-themed mosaic/decoupage piece for the kitchen. So many great possibilities!

Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Balloon weights for a party maybe???

How about making a piece of art for the kitchen by spelling out MILK with the brown ones and using the blue ones as the background? Attach all to a board or cardboard and hang on the wall.

Neat find!

Good Luck!

If you wanted to be realy themey, you could make the lamp from a vintage milk bottle or bottle carrier. They also would make cute shingeles for a bird house, but not sure how they would hold up in the elements. You could also attach magnet on the back as cute refrigerator magnets (but who would want 100's of these on the frdige door?).
