Use plastic and metal bottle caps and jar lids to make these fun ornaments!
bottlecaps and jar lids
felt, flannel or some other soft fabric
trims and beads for embellishing and making a hanger
small stitchings to fit on the caps
Cut circles of the felt or flannel to fit the tops of the bottle caps and glue them on.
Cut the stitched pieces an inch or so beyond the size of the cap. Then do a running stitch about 1/8th of an inch from the edge.
Put the cap inside the circle and pull the thread tight, center the stitching and tie a knot.
To make the fabric tighter over the cap sew across the back of the fabric until the fabric is sewn in place.
You can add a band around the cap, so the wrinkles in the fabric aren't noticeable. Then sew on beads or add a little embroidery around the
edge of the cap.
Glue a piece of fabric or felt over the back of the cap. Add a hanger out of beads or ribbon or cord to the top.
