Remove the cuff from the sleeve of a shirt and build this painless DIY

Tired of using the same old boring coffee tumbler day after day? This project is a fun way to give it a makeover while also creating something functional. Coffee cozies are ideal for protecting your hands from a hot container, but are also a cute way to show off your personal style.
The best part is you don't need a ton of materials or time for this DIY project. All you'll need to do is find an old shirt you won't be wearing anymore, and a coffee tumbler that needs a cozy. In a matter of minutes, your new coffee cozy will be ready for use.
