Today is a glorious day!
Why's that you ask?
Because I'm leaving for Florida with Miss Heather and I's good friends, Ellen and Bosch.
*I wish Miss Heather was coming but, alas, it wasn't possible!*
Anyways, since we are crazy crafters we decided to make our own koozies for the trip!
|Our finished project!|
From left to right: Ellen's, Miss Mel's, Annie's and Bosch's koozies!
Here's how we made them.
(I apologize for the picture quality! We were working outside and it was getting dark fast!)
*Feel free to use all listed below or to pick and choose your favorite items!*
Plain foam koozies found at Hobby Lobby, the Dollar Store or Wal-Mart
Colored foam sheets
Hot Glue Gun
Take your koozie and select either to cover it with a colored foam sheet or cloth.
Use either the hot glue gun or Modge Podge to stick it to the koozie.
The reason I say use either the hot glue gun or Modge Podge is because we each had a different method of assembling our koozies.
I personally found that using the Modge Podge worked better with the cloth and using the hot glue gun worked better with the foam sheets.
*Be careful though because we found that the hot glue gun was slightly melting the foam!*
Take a piece of ribbon and hot glue it around the top of your koozie to give it a finished look.
Add any other embellishments you choose! Such as, adding a foam letter with gems, hot gluing down a bow, placing gems on the back, whatever you want!
Show off your work!
|Notice that Annie's (third from the left) has gems on the back to look like buttons! Super cute!|
|Ellen's and Miss Mel's|
I can't wait to use mine!
-Miss Mel and Miss Heather
I made one for Miss Heather yesterday that she can have when we are reunited in the next couple of weeks!
Did you know that woozies a.k.a. wine koozies were a thing? Hah!
