Homemade Father’s Day Gifts-Beer Cap Tray

Each week I bring you a craft that is fun and frugal. Father’s Day is right around the corner so in the next month, I will be creating Homemade Father’s Day gifts for this very important holiday! 

If you’ve missed any previous crafts, check out Momondealz’s Kids Frugal Fun page.

Just a side note, I laminateas much as I can when doing crafts…it really helps to preserve them.

Remember, if you love any of my crafts, be sure to Pin them on Pinterest!

Now before I catch any grief over this post, it should be noted that my sons have no idea what kind of caps were used in this craft, we simply called them bottle caps.

Paintable Wooden Tray W/Handles
Glue Gun
Beer Caps
White and Red Paint
Mod Podge


1.  Paint wooden tray your desired color (my son insisted on red).
2.  Arrange caps in the design you wish.  We chose a W for our last name.
3.  Paint the caps if desired.  We wanted the border and ‘W’ to stand out so we painted those white.
4.  Hot glue the caps onto the tray (obviously this was a Mommy job).
5.  Cover the caps and tray bottom in Mod Podge to ensure they stay. You can also use resinbut it’s a tad more expensive.


My husband LOVED his tray (yes he got it early). And I love that he now has a place to put his keys, phone, wallet, papers, pen…well, you get the point!
