Cute summer cup holders made from foam coozies, a bit of Duck Tape®, and a bunch of imagination! Oh yeah, and some bling too! A great summer craft that will keep the kids busy for hours!

I was honored to be added to the great group of bloggers participating in Design Dazzle Summer Camp! My project is meant to not only entertain kids of any age, but encourage them to enjoy water in these hot summer days. I mean, how can you pass up a blinged up coozie full of bottled water?


For this project I used:

Plain foam coozies (You can find them at your local craft store)
Foam stick-ons (a variety including pictures and letters)
Stick on jewels
Duck Tape (comes in a variety of patterns and colors)

Then, place everything in front of your kids and let them have at it! (Since I don’t have young children at the house anymore, my mother stopped by to give me a hand).

I have a large variety of Duck Tape, so we started out with that. It is easy to add to the foam cup holders, and looks great. A perfect start.

Then we decorated to our heart’s content. As you can see, the possibilities are endless! The kids will enjoy applying the foam decorations and everything is as easy as peel and stick. A perfect activity for even the younger kids.

Honestly, even two grown adults had fun with this project. I guess there is a bit of kid in everyone!

Stick some cool bottled water in your artistic coozies and there you go! A cool summer drink and a bunch of bling. Can’t beat that!
