Bottle Cap Art At the Cincinnati Zoo

I was told about this mural at the Cincinnati Zoo when we were working on our bottle cap mural.  I was excited to see how they went about theirs.  I loved that they used old CD's in their design....what a great idea.  The sun reflected beautifully off of them!  This was our first stop during our fall break.  One of my best  friends from college(and groomslady in my wedding) lives just out side of Cincinnati.  She has 3 kids(all girls)..and expecting a boy any day now!   We had a great time at the zoo...and getting to see this was an added bonus!

  3. Love the pics! I have 2 boxes of bottle caps and hopefully I can get to the bottle cap lesson this spring. I do like the idea of adding used cd's. I never thought about incorporating anything else besides bottle caps. Something to think about. What else can be recycled?

  6. Just to be clear friends...I did not do the mural at the Cincinnati zoo...I just took pictures of it because of my recent bottle cap mural project..and I thought it was fun to see how different people approached it.
