Are you looking for a coffee cozy? Here is an easy no sew DIY made with Dollar Tree items and it makes a fantastic gift.
Today, in this video tutorial, I am going to show you how to make a DIY coffee cup cozy. We will be using socks to make a coffee cup sleeve for a reusable cup. This will help keep your hot drinks hot and warm your cold hands all at once. These cup cozies will make the perfect Christmas gift or party favor.
Coffee Cozy Materials
Today I’m going to take a cup from the dollar store and some fuzzy socks and create a fun and unique gift idea, or something just for you. let’s get started.
For this project, you will need a travel mug. I picked this one up at Dollar Tree. You’ll also need some socks in any variety or styles you like.

Coffee Cozy instructions
1. Cut your fuzzy socks
For this first example, I cut the ankle of the socks with scissors.
2. Slide the sock onto the travel mug
I then took the cup and slid the cuff of the sock onto the mug. I slid it about halfway up until it looked like this. I created a really cute coffee cozy for my travel mug.
Here’s another example, but this time I’m going to cut the sock a little differently. This sock I cut this at the bottom of the design all the way across.
I slid the sock onto the mug and this was a longer design so it covered the entire mug. Long or short you have two different options either a shorter cozy or a long one.
You can also do this with seasonal socks and Dollar Tree sells a variety of socks all year round. For this one, I took a pumpkin sock and after cutting it I slid it on and I had a pumpkin cozy for my travel mug. You can also do this with holiday socks. I’m going to use this sock to make two coffee mug cozies. First I’ll start with the bottom half which is Rudolph. I cut the sock in half and then slid the sock onto the travel mug. Now I have a Rudolph cozy. By cutting this sock in half I was able to use the other half for another coffee cozy. I will do the same thing with the Santa sock. I will use the top half for the Santa face cozy and the bottom half for a Santa belly cozy.
For this last example, I’m not going to cut the sock. Instead, I will slide the entire sock on the travel mug. I rolled the top to the inside so there would be room to drink.
This is a cute way to make any coffee mug festive all year long.
Now you’ll be able to make this cozy pattern and you don’t have to worry about the right sides being together, seam allowance, wrong side of the fabric, or what a single crochet is. No fancy cotton yarn, lining fabric, or cozy template to buy. You don’t need a free pattern for this one. You’ll be able to take your hot coffee or hot beverage with you, and use these cozies on hot cups after you get done at the coffee shop. You can give a little gift card with your reusable coffee sleeve. Your friends and family will appreciate the free coffee. Don’t forget to tell them they can order with their mobile device and any other tips and tricks you have.

I have done this for years. I especially use this for cold or half frozen water bottles..the sock catches the condensation ,so you don’t have water drips .
