DIY Monogrammed Koozies

It happened again.  You know that moment when you go to Target to dash in and pick up milk and laundry soap, only to come out an hour later with a basket full of goodies and a new craft project in mind.  Today I’m sharing a quick and easy tutorial for DIY Monogrammed Koozies that will make your beverages swoon.

The other day on a routine Target run I took a detour threw the Dollar Spot and found the cutest koozies and simply couldn’t help myself.  I loved the colors and knew that they would be fun to have around for our spring and summer entertaining.  And because everything is better with a monogram I decided to whip up a few with my Cricut.

This is another super easy project that only requires a few supplies.  Here is what you’ll need:

I picked a few different monogrammed fonts in Cricut Design Space and cut them out on the gold glitter iron-on vinyl.

Next, I placed the vinyl on the koozies and carefully ironed them on each koozie.

I made a bunch with our friends monograms so when everyone is over hanging out and enjoying the beautiful spring weather they can keep their beverages cold in a cute and custom DIY monogrammed koozie.

  1. Great DIY! I think I’ve bought every koozie I’ve ever seen in the Target dollar section! I made DIY monogram koozies a whileeee ago but I didn’t even think to make them with my silhouette! Such a great idea 🙂

    • Thank you Adriana, I’m in the same boat and I can’t stop buying them when I go to Target. At least all my friends will have cute monogrammed koozies. 🙂

  2. I know you mentioned this font being in cricut design space…do you happen to remember which font it is? Thank you!! So cute!

    Can you explain in more detail how you ironed on your vinyl, like what temp., how long you ironed for and if you put a towel over your HTV. I’m trying to do this and I am melting the koozie. I would greatly appreciate any tips you could give me. Thank you for your time!

      Beautiful work by the way!

    • Hi Julie! Of course. I set my iron on the silk setting, which is a low to medium heat. I put the HTV on the koozie and then covered it with a light dishtowel. I firmly held the iron in place for 10 to 15 seconds and then checked to see if the vinyl adhered by gently peeling back one of the corners. If it didn’t stick just hold the iron in place for 10 more seconds, repeat if necessary. I made sure that the iron never directly touched the koozie. I have also in the past placed a lightweight dish towel or small piece of cloth inside the koozie to make sure it didn’t melt together. Where did you get your koozies from? Mine were purchased from Oriental Trading, but I have also used ones from the Target Dollar spot before and never had problems with ironing on them. It could be the type of koozie you purchased, but try lowering the temp, making sure you have it covered and only holding the iron in place rather than moving it back and forth. If you are still having trouble feel free to email me at mariah(at)gigglesgalore(dot)net.
