A fun, funky little hairclip.

I was in a hairclip-making mood this weekend, and I just randomly started making these and thought they were cute.



Instructions

  • How to make a bottle cap hair clip. Bottlecap Hairclip - Step 1
    Step 1

    Take a bottlecap and punch two holes in it with the hammer and screwdriver.

  • How to make a bottle cap hair clip. Bottlecap Hairclip - Step 2
    Step 2

    The holes don't have to be perfect. You'll cover them later with decorations.

  • How to make a bottle cap hair clip. Bottlecap Hairclip - Step 3
    Step 3

    Using the needle and thread, attach the bottlecap to the hairclip.

  • How to make a bottle cap hair clip. Bottlecap Hairclip - Step 4
    Step 4

    Turn it over and use the glue gun to attach the bottlecap to the clip a little better. It will just give it some extra safety so it will be more sturdy and not break as easily.

  • How to make a bottle cap hair clip. Bottlecap Hairclip - Step 5
    Step 5

    Add your decorations on the inside. You can decoupage it with Mod Podge and cute sequins and glitter and bits from magazines if you'd like, or you can hot-glue tiny pieces of felt in there, like I did.

Thats really cool I might adapt it to make a necklace or something. Now I just have to find some of that hodge podge stuff people are always talking about.

You could also flatten the bottle caps and glue stuff in the middle to make little flowers...
or what if you did little miniature scenes in the bottle caps and covered them with clear acrylic or something...
