Default Pony Tail Streamers w/bottle caps?

Hi, I am trying to figure out the ebst way to attach a bottlecap onto pony tail streamers. What is the best way to do this? Glue, yes, but do I glue the cap right onto the ribbon or do I need to use a disc? And, what TYPE of glue? Or is there a shnk kit that I can buy? I really appreciate the help, I have asked this a few times elsewhere and got no response. Thanks a million!

Default Re: Pony Tail Streamers w/bottle caps?

When I attach bottle caps to pony tail streamers I use the same method as attaching them to bows. I cut a piece of 3/8" ribbon and glue it to the center of the bottle cap. I use E6000 glue and put a big glob in the center (I've heard it referred here to as a "lake of glue"), lay the ribbon in the glue and with a toothpick push the ribbon down into the glue until it is sort of sunken into the glob. I also make sure the ribbon is glue to the inside sides of the cap. (I usually let the E6000 set over night too.) Once it's dry I hot glue the cap to the center of the pony tail streamer and then wrap piece of ribbon around the streamers and the elastic pony tail holder and hot glue and/or sew the ends.

Make sense? Let me know if you still have questions...I'm happy to help. Good Luck!

I make a lot of these.

I use a small dab of hot glue in the bottle cap and then place a 3/8" ribbon in the glue. After that I fill the rest of the bottle cap about 2/3 full of hot glue and then cover it with a 1" covering. It really secures the bottle cap once you are ready to attach it to a pony o or clip.
