Koozies are amazing things that keep your beer (or soda) cold and your hand not during tailgates, spring break, sporting events, beach weekends, or just regular weeknights if you live with me. They also make cute desk containers for non drinkers. These colorful beverage decorations are cheap, easy, and personalized gifts.
- foam koozies- they can be found at most craft stores, usually for about $1
- ribbon(s)- you need at least 1/3 yard to circle the koozie, more if you want a bow.
- glue gun
- gems, sequins, bottle caps, whatever you want to pimp your koozie
- clear nail polish
- Figure out how you’re going to pattern or layer your decorations.
- Glue the first ribbon down. Make sure to glue every inch or so.
- When you get to the end of the ribbon, leave enough to fold over and then overlap the other end, this covers up all fraying ends.
- Then repeat the process with your next layer of ribbon if desired.
- Fold over both ribbons together and glue down.
- If you wish to add a bow, go ahead and tie the bow as a separate piece. This way you can even the tails. Add a bit of glue in the middle of the bow so it won’t come untied later. Coat the edges of the tails in clear nail polish to avoid fraying. Glue the bow on.
- Glue on any gem stones or other additions. I used shoe decorating pins here.
- Use or gift!
