Hiya, creative friends! Hope you are having a great summer! We have had so much fun at my house crafting this summer. I even introduced my kids to one of my favorite crafting supplies from when I was a kid: Plastic Canvas! And when I was little, it didn’t even come in these cool colors! We had so much fun coming up with plastic canvas ideas to craft.
My kids and I put together a fun project, and we just had to share. For a summer pool party, we made these fun drink koozies together. It was a great way to teach my kids about threading a needle and doing some basic stitching. They just loved coming up with these plastic canvas ideas and making them come together.
Koozie Plastic Canvas Ideas Project Supplies:
- Darice Glass Milk Bottles
- Darice Plastic Canvas in Purple, Neon Pink, and Neon Blue
- Tapestry Needle
- Darice Yarn in White
- Darice Scissors
First measure the circumference of your milk glass jar, or whatever glass jar you want to use. Measure the height you want your drink holder to be, and cut out rectangles from your plastic canvas. I cut them out in several different colors, but you can cut them all the same if you want to!
Next, cut some basic shapes for embellishments.
Using your white yarn and tapestry needle, stitch a white border along your cut shapes and rectangles.
Be sure to stitch your drink koozie together in the back so it forms a circle.
Last step! Use an adhesive pop-dot or glue gun to add a small dab of glue to the back of your shape. Adhere it to your drink koozie, and insert your glass. Now you are ready to sip in style!
