Winter is definitely HERE with a blustery vengeance, even in Florida, so what better way to brighten those dreary, cold days than with a sweet woodland Raccoon wrapped around your coffee or tea cup! Quick and easy to create in under 30 minutes with supplies you probably already have in your stash! The perfect gift to give that wonderful person in your life that needs to be reminded how much they are loved!
Here’s What You Will Need:
• Kunin Classicfelt™ 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – White, Silver Grey, Charcoal and Black
• Kunin Eco-fi® Premiumfelt™ 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Lagoon
• Tombow MONOTWIN Permanent Marker
• Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks; Pencil; Eraser; Scissors; Plain Paper; Chipboard; Hook and Loop Tape, self-adhesive; Half Pearls – Black, Self-Adhesive; Aquarellable White Pencil by Stabilo; KUNIN DIY WOODLAND RACCOON COFFEE COZY PATTERNS
Here’s How to Make it:
Download and print the coffee cozy patterns HERE. Cut out, trace onto chipboard and cut out again. Trace the rest of the patterns on to Kunin Classicfelt™ White, Silver Grey, Charcoal and Black with MONOTWIN Permanent Marker or Aquarellable White Pencil by Stabilo. Cut out all pieces with scissors.
DESIGNER TIP: Remember to cut INSIDE the lines for a neat and clean finished project.
Layer and attach all pieces of the Raccoon Coffee Cozy with hot glue referring to the photo for placement.
Trace cozy pattern on to Kunin Premiumfelt™ Lagoon. Attach half pearls for highlights in the eyes with a small dab of hot glue for a permanent bond.
And finally, cut hook and loop self-adhesive tape to fit the short edge of the coffee cozy. Peel back liner paper and attach top edge. Peel back second liner paper, wrap cozy around coffee cup and press firmly to adhere.
I hope you will use my DIY Woodland Raccoon Coffee Cozy as a jumping off point to showcase your Kunin Creativity and create something sweet and snuggly today!
