Follow the proper method in making this Handy All-in-One Pincushion and Button Bottle:
Step 1: Clean glass bottle and remove the unnecessary stickers around it.
Step 2: Paint the body of the bottle using an acrylic paint. This is the best paint that can be used in materials like this. Let it dry for an hour.
Step 3: Cut a piece of craft felt in reference to the diameter of the bottle cap. Make sure to leave an extra 1 centimeter border on the edge.
Step 4: Cut the craft felt border vertically towards the sides of the can. Observe proper spacing for this to achieve better results.
Step 5: Make a second coating to the glass body once dried. Let it dry for an hour.
Step 6: Hot glue each of the vertically sliced felt on the rim of the bottle cap. Make sure to leave a small opening, since we will put some fillings after.
Step 7: Cut the craft felt fillings (or whatever alternative fillings that are available) into tiny bits of pieces.
Step 8: Insert the fillings inside the top cap through the open hole. Use the tip of the scissor to push the fillings inside.
Step 9: Seal the small opening on the top cap using hot glue.
Step 10: Glue the green satin ribbon around the rim of the bottle cap.
Step 11: Put now your buttons on the bottle and your pins on the pincushion and you are ready to go!
Step 12: Finally done! You now have a handy, all-in-one pincushion and button bottle that you can use whenever you are sewing.
