Steps:

1. Pull the plastic seal out of the bottle cap.

2. Tap a small hole into the flanged rim of the bottle cap with a hammer and awl to create a dangle piece. The decorative dangle feature can be adorned with beads/charms.

3. Place the bottle cap on a hard surface with the edge facing up. Lay a metal washer on top of the bottle cap and hammer lightly around the edge of the washer until the edge of the bottle cap turns down and forms a frame.
