diy beer coozie for dads
1. Create stencil or use store-bought and figure out placement on coozie.
**If creating your own stencil, print DAD and a mustache image on cardstock.  Cut out with X-acto knife.

I just used basic stencil letters and mustache image

2. Tape stencil to coozie (clear packaging tape works well)
3. Paint one light coat of chalkboard paint. (you can even just get the basic outline of the stencil).

DO NOT paint it on thick or multiple paint layers… I did that at first and it was an epic FAIL.  Since the coozie isn’t flat, the paint bleeds easily.

What not to do!

4. Once the first layer dries, remove the stencil and HAND PAINT in a few more layers.  Trust me when I tell you, this is much easier.  You just want to make sure the chalkboard paint is solid black, so a few layers will do.
5. When the paint layers have dried, take chalk and cover the letters… blend it in.  (This helps cure the paint).
6. Draw patterns in the letters and mustache for added details!  You can use basic fabric paint or acrylic paint… but chalkboard paint gives a fun dimension.
7. Cut out printable or paper mustaches and tape to the beer bottles for added detail.
