DIY Reusable Duct Tape Coffee Sleeve

SONY DSC
Turn your morning coffee into a fashion statement with this DIY woven coffee sleeve. Using Scotch® Color & Pattern Duct Tape website Scotch Colors and Patterns Duct Tape you can give your daily cup and colorful upgrade.

To make this woven coffee sleeve you’ll need:
- Scotch® Color & Pattern Duct Tape website Scotch Colors and Patterns Duct Tape – we used Lace Vegas, Pearl White and Jet Black
- A paper coffee sleeve
SONY DSC
- A paint marker (optional)
- Felt

Instructions:

 SONY DSC
Cut or tear a 6″ section of Scotch Colors and Patterns Duct Tape in your primary pattern. We used our fave, Lace Vegas. Fold it in half lengthwise.
SONY DSC
Place a small piece of double-stick tape at the top of your cutting mat and stick the duct tape piece on top.
SONY DSC
Use the X-acto knife and ruler to carefully cut the duct tape into 4 separate 1/4″ wide strips. Repeat until you have enough strips to span the length of the coffee sleeve.
Next, cut or tear a 12″ section of Scotch Colors or Patterns Duct Tape in your accent color or pattern.
SONY DSC
We used white tape and colored it with a paint marker to give it a neon yellow pop. Fold the tape in half lengthwise. Using the scissors, cut the tape into 1/4″ strips. Repeat until you have enough strips to span the height of the coffee sleeve.
SONY DSC
To line up your pattern for weaving, start by placing a 12″ strip of double-stick tape on your work surface. Stick the 6″ segments of your primary color along the length of the of the tape edge to edge.
SONY DSC
Once all of the 6″ segments are secured, begin weaving your longer 12″ strips in a design. We made a large diamond.
SONY DSC
It’s often easiest to start from the center of your design and work outwards symmetrically. Don’t be afraid to play around and find the design you like best!
SONY DSC
When you are done weaving, lay a second 12″ strip of double-stick tape on your work surface at the bottom of your design and press the ends of each 6″ strip neatly onto the tape. This should secure your woven design.
SONY DSC
Take 3 12″ strips of duct tape (we used white) and overlap them slightly with one another into a large patch, sticky side facing up. Pick up your woven design and place it on top of the duct tape patch. Starting in the center, press down to secure.
SONY DSC
Using your paper coffee sleeve as a pattern, trace the shape onto the felt and cut it out.
SONY DSC
Spread a thin layer of tacky glue on the inside of the paper pattern and press the felt to secure.
SONY DSC
Using the paper coffee sleeve as a pattern again, trace the shape onto the reverse (white) side of the duct tape design and cut it out.
SONY DSC
Place the duct tape on the outside of the coffee sleeve paper pattern so that you have a ‘sandwich’ that looks like: duct tape on the outside, paper in the middle and felt on the inside.
SONY DSC
To secure the edges of the tape to the paper coffee sleeve, cut a 1/2″ wide by 2″ long strip of duct tape (we used black) and place it so that only 1/4″ or slightly less overlaps the edge of the woven design. Fold the tape around to the back onto the felt. Continue working around the entire coffee sleeve in this manner. Using the short 2″ pieces instead of one long large strip makes it easier to handle the curves of the coffee sleeve design.
SONY DSC
When you’re finished, wrap the coffee sleeve into a cylinder and use a 1/2″ strip of duct tape to connect the edges of the strip into a cylinder.
SONY DSC
Slide your one-of-a-kind DIY duct tape coffee sleeve onto your favorite beverage and enjoy!

My UGG Art + Sole Boot Design

Here’s my design for the UGG Australia Art + Sole campaign benefiting Boys and Girls Club of America. It’s fun to see how Jenni (I Spy DIY), Grace (Stripes and Sequins) and I each came up with such different boots. I went for a colorful geometric design (is this any surprise?), Jenni’s features an animal print and Grace, naturally, went with stripes.

UGG Australia even made a video of us working on our designs and talking about the project. Don’t forget, you have until 12/26 to (1) enter your design for a chance to win $5,000 and have your design produced and (2) leave a comment about your DIY inspiration here for a chance to win a pair of UGG boots!
