Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:2 hours + dry time

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Spray paint a plastic cup in each of the following colors: Blossom Pink, Apple Red, Sun Yellow and Real Orange. Paint two plastic cups Leafy Green. While waiting for the cups to dry, vertically place foam board on work surface and lightly draw horizontal lines 6", 15" and 24" from top of foam board. Draw a vertical line 3-1/2" in from each side of foam board. For cup openings, draw circles that are 3-1/2" in diameter, centered over line intersections, for a total of six circles. (Tip: if you are using cups that aren't 4" in diameter, make holes are 1/2" smaller than cup.)
  • 2
    On unmarked side of foam board, beginning at horizontal center, spray with 3" wide stripe of Apple Red. Then spray 3" wide stripe of Blossom Pink on each side of Holiday Red. Continue working out from center with stripes of the other colors, ending with Leafy Green. Let dry. Cut out the circles from step 1. (Tip: When cutting, score lightly first and then press more firmly to cut deeper, with several passes of the knife. Replace blade often.)
  • 3
    Insert plastic cups into circles and glue them into place. Set point values to cups by putting number stickers below each cup. Set completed project on a flat surface. Have players toss bottle caps into cups; player with highest total wins!
