DIY Bottle Cap Ponytail Holder

I have had all these bottle caps laying around and yesterday day it dawned on me to try them out as ponytail holders. I had been looking at the cute vintage button bobby pins that have been covered with fabric and I looked at the bottle caps and wondered if I could do the same thing and well the answer is YES! And I hope you try this one, they would be great for stocking stuffers. I know its a bit early but with school starting today, it always gets me thinking about Christmas gifts.

Materials Needed:

  • Button
  • Bottle Cap
  • Scrap Fabric
  • Ponytail Holder
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue

1. Cut out a piece of fabric about an inch outside the bottle cap. Sew around the circle with the longest stitch your machine has or by hand and gather as you go.

2.Stick the bottle cap inside. It should look like this.

3.Hot glue the gathered section down into the bottle cap. Put more glue in the bottle cap and secure the ponytail holder in place until its dry, making sure to cover completely with glue.

4.You have the option here to cover your button with fabric or not. Next put more glue on top of the ponytail holder and secure with your covered or plain button.

You can use any fabric, but if you use see-thru material, make sure you use plain(no logos) bottle caps, or else the logos will show through.

Deal….but it might be a little bit because I don’t typically save bottle caps…which means that I might have to make a point to drink more beverages with this kind of cap šŸ˜€

So excited for this! I am going to a birthday party tonight and any bottles that happen to be there will be missing their caps by the end of the night!
