DIY Name Badge – Make One for Dad!

Whether you’re relaxing pool side this summer, keeping warm by the bonfire, or looking for a unique gift for dad this Father’s Day, this simple DIY will ensure you’ll never lose track of your drink again. Just slip the adjustable name tag over your favorite brew, and name your poison.

You’ll need:

  • Name badges (reclaimed, diy*, or new stock)
  • 6″ piece of 1/4 inch-wide elastic
  • Hole punch
  • Needle and thread

*DIY Name badges can be made using cotton twill fabric, double-sided fusible adhesive, and embroidering by hand or with your favorite machine.

 

Use hole punch to create holes at each end of name tag.

Thread elastic through hole, fold and overlap approximately 1 inch, and sew together. Repeat for the other end of the badge.

 

Pop the top off a cold one and enjoy! Great for bbq’s, holiday parties, bachelor parties, or just hanging out in the garage.

You’ll find me sipping sweet tea out of a mason jar all summer long with the occasional vanilla bean frappachino. What is your favorite summer drink?

  1. My 95 year old father has started to hold his coffee cup by the sides rather then the handle. The handle with his slight shaky hands doesn’t work for him anymore. But the side of the coffee mug gets really hot. Thanks for this great idea. I will modify slightly but this should create a barrier so he doesn’t burn himself.
