Default Bottlecap flowers!

I am wondering what others use to attach bottlecaps to flower heads? I have been using hot glue and leaving the jewel in the middle of the flower gluing the bottlecap to the jewel. I havent had any issues until recently and I have had a couple of the bottlecaps fall off. I was just wondering if anyone had a better solution for this. Thank you so much!

I would try the E6000 glue. It seems to do better with bottlecaps.

try using those chair cushioners that people put underneath so they dont scratch floors in the inside.. then you have a flat surface to attach to the bow.. hope that helps

Sometimes I've hot glued foam circles to the bottlecap first and that seems to really help.

I glue felt circles to the bottlecap and that gives lots more crevices for glue to adhere to. I have not had one fall off nor has my 4 year old been able to destroy one. If you ever need someone to test the strength of something, just let her have it for a while. She has attempted to pull apart more bows than I can count.

I use very hot, hot glue...my fingers are living proof of the heat of it...and I've never had a problem.

I use hot glue. I put the image on the inside of the cap and glue the flat surface to the flower or bow.
