DIY capcatchers for groomsmen. These are magnetic, decorative bottle openers that also catch the bottle cap.


Wood base, wood stain, paint, and stencils purchased at Michael's. Wood bases:$5.99/each, Stain; $8.99/can, Stencil: $3.99, Paint: $1.50/tube.


Instructions


1. Purchase: wood base, stain, acrylic paint, damask stamp, paint brush or sponge (I sponged on the paint to keep the paint from seeping under the stencil). The letter stencil is from Staples. And purchase the bottle opener online here, and capcatcher here. Purchase strong magnets and superglue from hardware store like Lowes. Magnets need to be able to support the weight when being used.


2. Stain the wood base. It only took one coat to get the desired color below. Let dry for 48 hours.


Original Color



Stained (still drying)              



3. Use a standard screw driver to screw the capcatcher and bottle opener in (should come with screws). The wood was soft enough to do this rather than using an electric one. Use a ruler to get them as centered as possible. The screws for the capcatcher should be far enough out of the wood to allow the catcher to easily be slid on and off to be emptied.



4. Paint your desired design. This was done after screwing in the bottle opener and catcher screws. Brown ink used for stamp, and black acrylic for letter. Do not apply to thick or it will crack.




5. Once paint is dry, glue two magnets to the back...one on the top and one on the bottom.
