DIY Faux Rattan Beverage Coozies

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. Wanna know how to make those fabulous candlesticks? Trish’s tutorial for those Dip Dyed Wooden Candlesticks is just a click away!
