{Personalized Coffee Cups} Perfect for Camping Adventures + Winter Parties

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Welcome to November friends! This past weekend, the family headed out to Coldspring, Texas for an annual Cub Scout Camping Trip with my son's pack. It had been many years since I last went camping and Wolf Creek Park ended up being a pleasant experience for all of us. We graciously absorbed the fresh pine air and the dancing autumn leaves all around. Our tent rested lakeside with a panoramic view of Lake Livingston, which was so beautiful and serene. The kids loved that they were steps away from the water, happily grabbing their fishing rods at every opportunity to enjoy this pass time with their friends. It was truly a picturesque scene. Once the night ended with chanting songs and skits from the boys, the bond fire settled to reveal a beautifully lit sky from the tangerine full moon. We left camp with wonderful memories and it's a campsite we look forward to visiting again.

When creating the checklist of things to bring, I wanted to make something cute & special to house warm beverages, such as coffee and hot chocolate in the morning. For one of Austin's birthday parties, we set up an outside coffee/hot chocolate bar with personalized to-go cups for our guests. It was such a crowd pleaser, that I thought incorporating the same concept here would be perfect, using a "bear camp" theme for the coffee cup sleeves.

It was such an easy DIY that ended up being super cute, so I had to share it with you all! It's a fun accessory for camping adventures and parties, and it's a great way for guests to feel special with personalized goodies you took the time to make. Keep reading to get all the details ...

All the materials I purchased were from Hobby Lobby, but I linked similar versions above.

To start, use the stamps to carefully imprint any of these bear themed names onto the coffee cup sleeves: papa bear, mama bear, brother bear, sister bear, and so on. Since I had a few sleeves left, I stamped my son's den name (Webelos), so we could proudly represent their den. For a simple + clean look, chose a lowercase stamp kit in a typewriter font. We all enjoyed this special accent at the camp out, including his other cub scout friends who joined us for hot chocolate in the morning. 

I hope you enjoyed this DIY that makes sipping coffee and hot chocolate all the more merrier!  Until next time ...

Warmly ~
