6 Step How To Make a Custom Ball Marker With Bottle Cap?

Written by Robin Brown on June 24, 2021
Ball markers are an essential accessory for many golf players. It allows other players to put before you on the green while keeping your mark intact. 

For the longest time, golfers have been using a quarter or a penny as a ball marker. Some even go the distance to invest in an actual ball marker. 

But did you know that you can make your own custom ball marker with as little as two bottle caps? In this post, we’re going to learn how to make a custom ball marker in a few easy steps.

Let’s jump right in. 

Select Your Bottle Cap

The primary reason you’re going for a custom ball marker is the fact that you want your personality to shine. A regular coin makes you look boring and you don’t want to invest in an actual ball marker. 

So, you need to start your journey by selecting a bottle cap brand that aligns with your personality. All you need to do is make sure that you’re selecting a metal cap and you have at least two of them. 

Gather the Supplies 

To successfully execute the plan you made, you need to gather the supplies before you start to show your craftsmanship. 

You’re going to need a set of pliers, a few different files, masking tape, strong glue of some kind, and a lot of patience. 

Flatten the Caps

This is your first task. Get the bottle caps out and start to flatten the crimped edges with the pliers. You can also use a vice and a hammer if you have access to those. In our experience, a regular plier does the job very well. 

Grab the sharp end of the caps and pull them outward with the pliers. Do it all around the cap until you have a flat metal bottle cap. 

Do the same with the other cap you have as well. 

Before you move any forward, take a little piece of masking tape and mask the top side of the cap. This way, when you finally press both of them down with your pliers, you don’t damage the paint on them. After all, it’s the paint that made you want them as your ball marker.

Glue the Coin

Although you’re making your custom golf ball marker with bottle caps to replace regular coins, you’re going to need coins for making your marker. Depending on the size of the bottle caps, you can insert a quarter, a penny, or a full dollar. 

Use the glue of your choice on the inside of one bottle cap. Gorilla glue or regular super glue will work just fine. 

After applying the glue, quickly attach the coin with one cap and let it dry. 

Do the same with the other bottle cap. Apply glue on the inside and press it hard on the coin before it dries. 

Filling the Edges 

As you straightened the bottle caps with pliers, the edges are very sharp right now. The sharp saw-like teeth are waiting for you to make a mistake. And if you don’t fix it now, you’ll be bleeding all over the golf course the next time you go out to play. 

That’s where the files come into play. Start with a rough one and slowly file the edges away. Move forward to finer ones with time. 

Once you’re happy that the edges are perfectly round and not sharp anymore, you can move along and start to wrap the edges. 

Wrapping the Caps Around the Coin

Congratulations! You’ve reached the final stage of making your own golf ball marker. As you sandwiched the coin between the two caps, there is a gap in the middle. Using a hammer or the pliers you previously used, you need to flatten the edges again to match on both sides. 

Once you’re done with the process, your bottle cap ball marker will look just as stylish as any other professional marker. Moreover, your one will have the custom branding on it, just like you wanted!
