Forget about using a standard quarter or a penny – what a bore! If you want to use a ball marker that shows off your personality is also acts as a great start to conversation with your playmates, try creating your own from the bottle cap of your favorite drink.
Step 1: Collect the necessary materials. You will need adhesive (like Gorilla Glue), adhesive tape, tongs, a file, coins and of course the selected bottle caps.
Step 2: Flatten the folded end of both bottle caps with forceps.
Step 3: Grind the folded edges of the bottle caps until they are smooth.
Step 4: File any sharp edges.
Step 5: Place masking tape on the logos of the bottle caps to protect them.
Step 6: Fill both bottle caps with your sticker.
Step 7: Add coins to give your marker the desired weight.
Step 8: Fill the remaining space in and around the coins with more adhesive.
Step 9: Align the caps and tighten them together.
Step 10: Peel off the masking tape and clean the edges with the file.
And you did it! Now you just have to enjoy your brand new homemade ball marker.
