Sick of flailing around in the dark basement, trying to find the pull chain for the light? Add a little heft and color to the mundane, and reuse a dozen bottle caps at the same time. Add a little heft and color to the mundane, and reuse a dozen bottle caps at the same time. These fun, funky pulls could also add a twist of retro-recycle panache to a paper lantern or old porcelain fixture. String them up on, well, string—or try jute, wire, silk cord, or just about anything that pulls your chain.

Tap into the potential of those nifty little bottle caps. A nail punch and a hammer will make a hole just the right size for your cord of choice. About 10 caps make a grabable handful.
