Default How to keep bottlecaps on Hairbows???????????????????????

This is what I have been doing. I also recently bought instructions from Green house Butterflies but haven't had time to try them yet. Look at photos.

This is the finished hairbow


This is what I do. I drill a hole in both end of the bottlecap. Next I use the smallest ribbon I find at Walmart in the rolls. I cut this on an angle. Next I push it through with a toothpick because they are on my craft table but it works. Next I light the ends of the ribbon and wrap around the clip. I almost forgot on the back of the bottlecap I also put hot glue where the ribbon threads through. I hope this makes since. Email me any questions you may have.

What a great idea. All I do is glue a circle foam on the inside of the cap and then I glue a piece of ribbon down the middle and then I glue it to the bow.

Foam that you use for foam projects and does it work.

Yes, for craft projects. So far it works. I just recently started making bottlecap bows. I bought a pack of foam sheets from the Dollar Tree Store.

explain exactly what you do. Do you cut the foam in a one inch circle then hot glue it inside the cap and next add the ribbon.
Thanks for all your help,

Yep, I cut the foam with a one inch circle punch and I glue it inside with E6000 and I glue the ribbon on the back of the foam with E6000 too and then I glue it onto the middle of the bow but with hot glue.

I do the lake o' hot glue method that was on a previous post. you fill the bottlecap with hot glue and stick your ribbon that is the center in the lake. works good, I found it works best with high temp glue.
