  • Plastic bottle cap,
    green if possible
  • Large size bubble wrap
  • Sequins or glitter
  • White glue
  • Scissors

What you do:

  1. Cut an 8-inch piece of ribbon. Rub glue around the outside of the bottle cap. Tie the ribbon around the bottle cap, then tie the ends together to make a hanger for the cap.
  2. Rub glue over the inside back of the cap. Sprinkle the glue with sequins or glitter.
  3. Cut one bubble from the bubble wrap. Rub glue around the inside edges of the cap and slide the bubble wrap into the cap over the sequins.

You might want to try decorating the inside of the cap with a little picture or sticker star with glitter around it.
