Pixar Up Grape Soda Pin

Introduction: Pixar Up Grape Soda Pin

Instructions to make your own Pixar Up-inspired Grape Soda pin (I created these pins for both a Russell and Carl Fredricksen costume for Halloween 2020); these would also make nice embellishments for a card with the text "You and me, we're in a club now..." or fun favors for an Up-inspired party.


- hot glue gun, hot glue sticks

- white acrylic paint, paintbrush

- large safety pin

- bottle cap

- purple and black paint pens

- Modge Podge

Step 1: Prep Bottle Cap Surface

Using Modge Podge (or Gesso), prepare the surface of the bottle cap for painting

Step 2: Paint Bottle Cap White

This may take several coats of paint to cover any writing/color on the original bottle cap - allow paint to dry between coats

Step 3: Paint Grape Soda Text (black)

Using black paint pen, write in the Grape Soda text - you can use a pencil to draw in an outline of the entire pin design first to help with spacing. I used these photos for reference.

Step 4: Paint Outline, Grapes, Leaves

Using the purple paint pen:

- carefully outline the half circles above and below GRAPE

- draw a circle around the outer perimeter of the bottle cap, color in the outline and the space around the "GRAPE" (the original design has a bit of white space between the black text and the purple background)

- draw the purple grape shape in the top half circle

- using black paint pen, draw the black leaf shape next to the grapes

Allow paint to dry completely

Step 5: Modge Podge to Protect Paint/seal Cap

Apply an even coat of Modge Podge, allow to dry completely

Step 6: Hot Glue Safety Pin to Back of Bottle Cap

I used tape to mark how I wanted the pin placed. Be sure to glue the pin at an angle so there is enough clearance to actually open and close the pin.

Step 7: Pin on and Enjoy!
