So, for anyone who has done this, what is the most efficient way of attaching bottle caps to a leather guitar strap? Hot glue gun, staple gun, or what?

Hot glue would work. But you have to devise a way to stick them on. If you were going to stick them on with the underside up, then that would be easy, but if you want the logo/brand names up then that's harder.

^Nah, they'd just fall off.

Punch a hole through the middle of each cap, and sew them on.

or glue those little pin things on the backs so theyre like a mini button and just put them on that way...

Whatever you do, try to avoid Gorilla Glue. I've had bad experience with that stuff. It seems to get everywhere and doesn't go away.

w/ a .22? Lol, awesome, very creative.
I've hotglued them before, they should work. It all depends on what kind of strap you have.
I just buy a cool belt at american eagle or somewhere, fit some nails or whatever on it, slice some holes for the buttons in it, bada bing, bada boom, you have a sweet strap

Because it looks awesome and works a charm I recommend aluminium pop rivets. Just use a washer on the back to stop it tearing the leather, which also looks good.

I make guitar straps from belts I find in the sales - the ones with studs in and stuff. Unfortunately they tend to be one size only, but that's cool with me. The last one cost me £3, if it were made by Levy's it would cost soemthing like £40.
