Glitter Jumbo Bottle Cap Necklace

Glitter Jumbo Bottle Cap Necklace - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}I love anything glittery or sparkly.
I was thinking a Jumbo Bottle Cap would look great on a Ribbon Necklace.  Then I wondered how I could make it sparkly.
E6000 has proved to be very versatile and durable.  I’ve been using it a lot for different projects and I’ve become slightly addicted to it.
Why not put E6000 in the bottle cap and add glitter to it?
That’s what I did and it worked.

–Supplies–

Jumbo Bottle Cap
Ribbon Necklace
2 Jump Rings
Glitter
E6000
Euro Punch Pliers

Put enough E6000 glue in the bottle cap to cover the bottom.


Wait a minute to let the glue settle.

Pour your glitter over the glue and press it down into the glue.  Tap the bottle cap over a trash can to get rid of the excess glitter.

Punch a hole in your bottle cap with your Euro Punch Pliers.

With some needle nose pliers open up one of your jump rings.

Put the jump ring through the hole and close it using your pliers.

Attach the jump rings together.  Wait at least 12 hours for the glue to dry.

Glitter Jumbo Bottle Cap Necklace - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}Slip the ribbon necklace through the second jump ring and now you have a sparkly new necklace.
Glitter Jumbo Bottle Cap Necklace - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}The best part about this necklace is WHEN you get a compliment on it you get to say, “Thanks I made it!”  I don’t know about you, but I love to say those words!  Happy crafting! :)

    I love it!! Did you mix the glitter in the glue or just push it in? I always make the biggest mess with E-6000!

      I just pressed it in. As the glue dried it seem to suck all the glitter in. It doesn’t feel grainy to the touch.

    I love anything that sparkles! great idea! Does using that much glue leave any toxic fume smell? I’m wondering if that glue could be used for rhinestoning baby pacifiers?

      I think E6000 would be perfect for rhinstoning a pacifier. I would use a tooth pick or something so you don’t get a glob of glue. I didn’t notice a strong smell.
