Cover bottle caps with pretty fabric or paper



I was eight years old when I covered my first bottle caps. I have passed on this idea to many loved ones – it was an ideal opportunity to gather together during the cold winters.

Recycled items

  • Bottles with caps/lids
  • Pretty fabric or paper (I used paper)

Also needed

  • Modge podge/PVA glue
  • Small paintbrush
  • Water-based varnish
  • Scissors


  1. Work on a flat surface and draw a circle with a circumference about 1cm bigger than the circumference of the bottle cap. Cut it out.
  2. Paint a thin layer of glue on top of the cap and place the cap in the middle of the cut-out paper circle. A 1cm-wide piece of paper around the cap will not be glued. Cut clips in this paper circle all around the bottle cap.
  3. Use the paintbrush to paint glue onto the bottle cap sides. Press the paper clips onto the glued sides of the cap. Allow to dry.
  4. When it is completely dry, use a sharp pair of scissors and cut away any excess paper around the border of the bottle cap.
