Bottle Cap Neckerchief Slides for the Blue and Gold Banquet Dinner


This fun neckerchief slide would be a good one to do for the boys for the Blue and Gold Banquet.  I originally found these cute "bottle cap images" on a site for sale.  I bought them, and printed the sheet of 12 "bottlecaps" on a size 5x7 glossy photo paper, cut them out and put a back on them made out of 1/2" PVC pipe.  They did not cost much, and are a cute and easy neckerchief slide.  The company stopped selling these bottlecaps, so I made some of my own.  Click here to go to the page where I have them ready to download.

  • Click here to see all the blog posts that have bottle caps that are available on our blog.






My original plan was to make them with the glass stones, and printed them 5x7, but that made them a little too large to do them that way, so I just put a back on them.  I really quite like them.  They are cute and cheap!  The company stopped selling these bottlecaps, so I made some of my own.  Click here to go to the page where I have them ready to download.

If you want to learn how to do the neckerchief slides with the glass jewels, I have put that tutorial on our district site.  AlpineDistrictCubs.blogspot.com.  Click here.

Fall or Thanksgiving Neckerchief Slide Idea


This would be an easy neckerchief slide to do for fall or Thanksgiving.  We ordered these fuzzy magnets from Oriental Trading, colored them, put backs on them, and they were done.  They were quick, easy, and cheap!

Bunny in Hat Magic Abracadabra neckerchief slide idea - Core Value Positive Attitude - Theme Abracadabra

 
The Theme for January is Abracadabra and the Core Value is Positive Attitude.  The neckerchief slide idea for the month is to make bunnies coming out of a magicians hat made out of felt and fun foam.  Enjoy!

  • Print this PDF onto cardstock, and cut out all the parts.
  • Trace onto stiff felt (I used glitter foam for the red strip).  I also used a pencil to trace onto the black felt and it worked!
  • Cut out the pieces
  • Glue them together with a glue gun making sure the pen marks are on the back.
  • If you choose to put on eyes, the wiggly eyes I used are 8mm size.
  • I used sharpie markers to color the faces, and on one I also used a pink sharpie to color the ears.
  • Attach a back to the neckerchief slide.  I like to use 1/2" PVC pipe cut into small strips.
