Bottle ring toss game instructions
Bottle Ring Toss Game Instructions
- 2 small wood CD crates
- 12 glass or plastic bottles
- craft paint (red, white and blue)
- spray paint (blue)
- foam brush
- jute twine or yarn
- hot glue gun and glue
- assorted wood stars
- small embroidery hoops (4 hoops per player)
- 120 grit sand paper
- wax paper lined tray
- Sand crates and stars lightly to smooth any rough edges then paint interior and exterior of crate and front of stars with spray paint until covered. Let dry.
- Glue stars to 1 side of each crate with glue gun.
- Wash and remove any labels on bottles with warm soapy water – Goo Gone works like a charm to help remove any remaining glue.
- Pour red paint into 6 bottles and white paint into the other 6 bottles – add a tiny bit of water to your paint if it’s too thick. Rotate bottles slowly to cover the entire interior of the bottle then pour excess paint out.
- Place bottles upside down on wax paper-lined tray to finish draining paint, about 30 minutes then flip bottles right side up and clean rim then let them dry for 48–72 hours.
- Remove any stickers on embroidery hoops then remove metal parts by bending with pliers.
- Glue large hoop openings together with glue gun then wrap jute around hoops and secure with glue. Once dry, paint hoops with different colors and/or patterns, creating enough hoops so each player has 4.
- Place crates together and set 6 bottles in each crate to make 4 rows of 3 bottles. Mark a line 3-6 feet away from the bottles for game players to stand behind when tossing rings. Give each player 4 rings and have them stand behind the line. Toss rings onto the bottles and the player who rings the most bottles wins.
