If you’re getting married, you’ll know how important it is to have the perfect ceremony. You have to ensure there’s enough food and drinks for everyone, as well as the perfect decorations and setups, and that’s all before you consider the wedding favors. Wedding favors are gifts your guests will be able to take home with them as a token of appreciation for coming to the wedding, and there’s no better gift than custom koozies, so keep reading to find out how you can make that happen.

1. Get the Materials You Need

Before you’re ready to make your custom wedding koozies, you must decide whether you want to make them yourself or buy them online through a custom wedding favor vendor.  Some vendors can make your idea come to life at an affordable price and in half the time it would take to make them yourself, but if you are an artsy person who would like to try it on your own you’ll first need to gather some important materials that you’ll be using throughout the process. These include blank koozies, fabric markers or acrylic paint, brushes, stencils, pencils and chalk, painter’s tape, and cardboard.

The fabric markers or acrylic paint you get depends on the kind of finish you want on your koozie and whether you want it to be vibrant, colorful, or understated. Opt for fabric markers with proper treatment for lasting designs, ensuring your guests can use the koozies long after the wedding. Cardboard is integral for protecting your work surface and preventing any damage to it. You can also use chalk or pencil to sketch your design before you color it in.

2. Choose Your Design

Now that you have all your materials ready, it’s time to pick a design for your koozies. It should be appealing and fit well within the context of your wedding. You can search design templates online and sketch them onto the koozies before painting them, or experiment and come up with your own. Make sure you consider the colors you’ll be using and create the full design on a computer before applying it in real life. Depending on the kind of wedding you want, you can choose to go with an extravagant design or settle on one that’s elegant yet unique and looks good in any home.  

3. Apply the Design Carefully

The koozies you prepare using your own design will need to be applied carefully since they’ll be one of the central things that your guests experience during your wedding. Take your time and stencil in the design before you’ve applied the first coat of paint. If you’ve made a custom design, make sure you try it out on a koozie just as a test before you carry on making the rest. You can also elect to use online resources to make these koozies since you’ll need to design hundreds of them, and a company can get this work done in a fraction of the time with the same or better results.

4. Heat Set

Now that you’ve created and painted your design, you’ll have to prepare and treat it properly. Heat setting your koozie will prove ideal, especially if you’re working with fabric markers. This ensures the ink is unlikely to ever wash off, even with the condensation from the drinks it carries. If you’re working with multiple layers, this is the time to remove the painter’s tape and any other additions you’ve made. Place a cloth on the koozie, and use a heating iron at a low setting to distribute heat effectively to set the design.

5. Test and Distribute

At this point, you’re almost done with your koozies. But before you use them, it’s a good idea to test them. Test them with both cans and bottles to ensure they fit securely. Additionally, verify that minor water stains won’t smudge the paint. This step guarantees that your koozies not only look great but also function effectively when your guests use them. It’s a practical measure to ensure they serve their purpose flawlessly during your wedding celebration.


Crafting custom koozies for your wedding is a thoughtful way to show your appreciation to your guests. By following these steps, you’ll craft personalized koozies that add a unique touch to your celebration. It’s a small yet meaningful detail that adds a special touch to your big day, leaving lasting memories for everyone. Cheers to a successful and memorable wedding celebration!
