DIY Bottle Cap Hat Hair Pin


Bottle caps
Cardstock or thin cardboard
Bobby pins
Glue gun
Embellishments- ribbons, beads, etc.
Paint brush

STEP 1: Trace a circle larger than your bottle cap
STEP 2: Cut out the circle. This will be the bottom/brim of the hat
Step 3: Paint the circle (and bottle cap if necessary). It takes at least 2 coats to completely cover any clear areas. Let dry completely before proceeding on. Usually a 1 minute wait.  Optional: You can paint any other designs like polka dots, stripes, flowers etc.
Step 4: After the paint has dried completely, glue the top and bottom pieces together
Step 5: Glue on embellishment and other decorations
Step 6:  Make a small dot with the hot glue gun and attach the bobby pin (flat side down). Let dry and ready to wear!
