Default Re: Interchangable Bottlecaps for Bows?

I know this is an old post, but I found it while searching for something else. I'm JUST in the process of making these for a show I have next month. I glued a washer to the bow center. It's not too heavy, but right now, I only have done basic bows (not stacked).

For the bottle cap, I glued (E6000) a wood disc to the inside of the cap, then glued a magnet to the disc. I think they will go over well.

notes on the discs:
1. If I really want, I can paint them to match the bow/cap color.
2. I bought a 1" dowel and my hubby cut out all the discs. MUCH cheaper than the furniture plugs that others use.
