Delayed (not) December (not daily) Doodles: Bottle Cap Baubles (deadline 11.00am 2 January)[Winners announced!] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



Winners announced here

Bottle Cap Baubles!

I'm a big fan of upcycling and nothing gives me more pleasure than turning something that we throw out every day into something that is decorative. Your task for this doodle is to upcycle bottle caps into Xmas decorations with a YPP theme. I don't just want one decoration, I want three. They don't need to be the same, they can be constructed in different ways but displayed together they should reflect some aspect of YPP. For example: powder, wad and shot would be three different decorations coming together to reflect the art of gunning.

How you go about this is completely up to you. Your decorations could be as small as one bottle cap, or as elaborate as you can imagine and construct. Keep in mind I'm expecting to see them hanging in some form, so don't get too big! You aren't limited to metal bottle caps. Plastic screw tops are also acceptable. You can use all metal, all plastic or combine if that works for you.

Please include the following in your post:
  • Your pirate's name and ocean
  • Your favorite in-game color, excluding special colors.
  • Link to a photo of the materials with ID card
  • Link to an in-progress picture with ID card for each individual item.
  • Post an image of the finished items hanging from something using image tags, as shown here. Please keep it to a maximum size of 600 x 600 pixels.

    Other rules/information
  • Only one entry per player
  • Contest will finish at 11.00am 2 January
  • All photos must have a card/paper in them with your pirate name written on it.
  • Upload the images to a hosting site such as flickr.com, photobucket.com, imageshack.com.
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline.
  • Please read the RULES post before posting.
  • Have fun creating!

    Edit: You may paint or otherwise embellish the bottle caps!

    Cattrin on Cerulean
    White!



    Even though I am very bad at the puzzle, I think the charged rumble pieces are very pretty and act as a colorful addition to any pirate's tree.

    [Materials] I only used the three regular plastic bottle caps. One is from milk, the other two are from my roommate that I shamelessly dug out of the recycling...

    [Progress 1] The chocolate tin was for mixing paint. Did you know the red ball doesn't get a swirly? I didn't know that.

    [Progress 2] Used strips of grocery store vegetable/fruit bags for the "glow" and floss to hang with. Bags were pre-used, floss was not .

    - Arianne of Obsidian

    I love Blue :)

    My decorations is centered around navigation. I love the puzzle but it does not love me (well at least not on Obsidian :P). I also love that the pieces are all star shaped, fitting amongst my Christmas decorations!

    Materials

    Progress 1 2 3 4 5

    I took many more photos and forgot my ID photo for them so I'm submitting only these to be safe, but as you can see I made all five stars :)

    Finished!

    Yarr! Awesome work everyone! It has been a pleasure seeing how creative everyone was with the humble bottle cap!

    The winner, earning a delightful frosty fir, winter ornament trinket and a Hera egg is Alpha on Obsidian. Two runners up are Elyzabeth on Obsidian and Stephs on Emerald both who will soon find in their inventory a trinket, holiday wreath and Hera Egg. All three will also get a brand new Shiny Sun point to add to their collection.

    Prizes will be delivered over the next couple of days. Congratulations!
