These decorative bottle cap fishing lures are simple and easy to make, and we know your nature-loving, fishing-fanatic dad will love them!
• Bottle caps (use your dad’s favorite beer or soda brand for extra brownie points)
• Fishing hooks
• Split rings
• Screwdriver (optional)
How it’s done:
Take a bottle cap and drill two holes on the lip of the cap opposite of each other. We used a hammer and a nail, but we suggest using a drill to speed up the process.
Next, secure a split ring through each hole.
Attach a fishing hook through one of the split rings. Then, attach a clasp through the opposite split ring.
Lastly, fold the bottle cap by wrapping it around a screwdriver.
(Hint: Most of the tutorials we saw instructed us to fold the bottle cap before doing anything else. After a few practices, we found it was easier to drill holes and attach the split rings before folding the cap.)
The final touch? Wrap your lures in a cute, creative package. Use a fishing net in the bottom of the package instead of tissue paper or crinkle, or seal your package using a fishing line bow.
