Under the Sea Upcycled Brooch

This easy  Under the Sea Upcycled Brooch project makes clever use of a simple bottle top. Customize it to any theme you would like with novelty buttons in your favorite licensed characters, charms, old jewelry and found objects! It looks perfect on a jean jacket and makes a great last minute gift idea as well!

1. Gather up your supplies. Cut a piece of fleece that is slightly longer than the circumference of the bottle top and wide enough to cover the sides.

3. Generously squirt hot glue into the bottle top and spread it around the inner walls. While the glue is still soft, generously sprinkle a variety of glitter into the bottle top, pressing it into the bottom and sides of the cap.
