I’ve always loved the beer and soda bottle cap projects, but how about using other types of jar and bottle lids? Since we have several beer snobs in the family, I’ve saved a lot of craft beer bottle caps. But we’re also big fans of Stubb’s Barbecue Sauce and the Stubb’s sauce happens to come jarred with the cutest little jar lids.
Each bottle cap has a sweet message from Stubb himself, like, “My life is in these bottles.”
There’s even a message inside the bottle cap.
I thought they’d make interesting fridge magnets and maybe even a nice Father’s Day gift idea.
Here is a refrigerator magnet project that takes about 1 hour to make using upcycled BBQ jar lids and beer bottle caps. Which will definitely take you a little longer to collect, but once you have them, you can make some, too.
Grilled Sirloin Steak Marinade ala Stubb’s
But before I show you the project details…
I want to share one of our favorite super simple Stubb’s recipes:
1) Sirloin steak – any quantity.
2) Bottle of Stubb’s Original BBQ sauce – enough to make sure the meat is covered.
3) Marinate steak in the Stubb’s sauce at least four hours – the longer the better.
4) Cook steak to your preference on the grill.
The Stubb’s Original has a nice mild flavor (not spicy) and it really tenderizes the meat. We use it the same way for barbecued chicken. Give it a try. It’s really good
You may be able to find Stubb’s in your local grocery store, you can check it out here.
Is your mouth watering, yet?
Beer and Barbecue sauce bottle cap magnets
Supplies I used to make the magnets
BBQ sauce and beer bottle cap magnets
Magnets (1-1/2” D x 1/4 for the Stubb’s lids) and ( 3/4” D, for the beer bottle caps.)
1) Clean bottle caps well. Wipe down with the rubbing alcohol
2) Flip caps and apply glue to inside. Let set for 2-5 minutes.
3) Place magnets inside. After several minutes, wipe off any excess with damp paper towel. Let dry 24 hours.
Note: I used less glue on the Stubb’s magnets because the 1-1/2” diameter magnets I used for the Stubb’s lids fit exactly inside the jar caps. They snapped right in, actually. But I still chose to glue them because the 1-1/2″ magnets are very strong.
As I mentioned, this could be a cute gift for Father’s Day, but also for an outside patio bbq area, a game room, etc..
Not all jar lids are fancy. I noticed many bbq sauces have the plastic kind of lid, but I was thinking there might be some fun ones on specialty jam and jelly jars, salsas, etc… Have you spotted any interesting jar lids lately?…because I know you’ve been looking;)
