DIY Faux Rattan Beverage Coozies

These DIY Faux Rattan Beverage Coozies are one of my favorite projects. They add both a bit of nostalgia and warmth to our outdoor dining and entertaining. I know how much our readers love a simple and quick project and this one is just that. Read on to learn how to create your own…

I am a girl born in the 70’s. Yep…bell bottoms and all!

I grew up in the 80’s…big hair and all!

But, I have fond memories of my parent’s cabin and some ice cream colored tumblers they had from the 60’s or 70’s…you remember, they were mint green, pepto pink, and sherbet orange. They were plastic but had rattan inside the plastic. I hear they are quite the find at flea markets, perhaps I need to ask for them the next time I visit my parents.

Anyway, when I was planning my Summer Beach Tablescape, I remembered those and made this little version of DIY Rattan Beverage Coozies to go with my natural, beachy theme…


These are so simple and turned out wonderful..and super inexpensive. Why have a plain ‘ole glass when you can dress it up in a few easy steps. Here is what you need to do…

Supplies Needed for DIY Faux Rattan Beverage Coozie…

  • Raffia ribbon {this came from Hobby Lobby }
  • Glasses {this 4 pack is from Target}
  • Glue gun and glue sticks


Step 1:

Cut your ribbon long enough to go around the glass twice. Fold the ribbon in half so that the weave of the ribbon overlaps and creates a tighter weave….


Step 2:

Flatten out the ribbon and trim the edges. { see how the ribbon now makes an “x” design rather than a “v” design due to overlapping the weave}…


Step 3:

Simply use your hot glue gun {be careful} and glue the ribbon where the ends meet to form a circle around the glass and all done!


Such a simple addition to the glass, but makes quite an impact! Plus it prevents the glass from being slippery, which is very common here in the south due to the glasses sweating outside in the heat.


This is really a great idea for you next dinner party or event. One roll of ribbon could do lots of glasses and you could nix up tall glasses and short ones too. Such a simple and easy project! I think they go great with our Summer Beach Tablescape.

    Great idea. I have several rolls of raffia ribbon and I have been looking for a use for it. Think I will make a set of 8 and maybe decorate a clear glass plate or two as well. Thanks for sharing.

    We just had a Hobby Lobby open near us, I’m thrilled! Amazing that this ribbon can have such a dramatic look! We would love to have you share this at our Saturday Link Party. Each link will be shown on two blogs, Made From Pinterest and Bakerette. It starts Fridays at 3pm, hope we see you there!

    Please remember to put a link back to Made From Pinterest at the bottom of your post(s).

    I have been looking for this raffia ribbon that looks just this picture but I have been able to find it. Could you please let me know
    where I can purchase this raffia ribbon. I checked in the web under Hobby Lobby but there is nothing that looks like this ribbon.
    Thank you Diana

    Super cool! I didn’t even know there was raffia ribbon like that, but I honestly haven’t looked. I bet my man would love this!

    You girls are so creative! These classes are really adorable! One question – are the coozies removable so the glasses can still go through the dishwasher or are they hand wash only? I have recently started a new link up party with Refresh Living and Vintage Refined and we would love to have you stop by and link with us! The party starts every Tuesday @7pm CST.

    I hope to see you there!

    I am a 1950s baby. We had slim glasses that come with rattan coasters like these but had a bottom so the glasses were inserted into a little cane jacket. That allowed iced to wick in the south where I was also raised. I wish I had them! But these look so very authentic. What a brilliant idea.

    How cute is that?! Love it. So you just slip them on the glass? They’re not too tight to slip on?
