Sometimes with a little savvy and a few bucks, you can create something even better than what you would buy off the rack at a department store.In this easy tutorial, Jason Pole Smith shows us how to create the perfect summer companion: a DIY soda can cooler. Jasonwanted to create a cooler that would perfectly fit a box of soda cans. The idea was that the box would go straight from the fridge into the cooler, then wherever he was headed.
The cooler fits the box like an insulated sleeve that is perfect for a day in the park, camping, or tailgating at the big game. Jason creates the entire cooler out of a cheap vinyl tablecloth, the waterproof layer, flexible foam, the insulating layer, and plastic spray adhesive to connect thematerials. He then uses no-sew Velcro to create the opening and closing mechanism.
With just a few materials and a pair of scissors, the fully functional cooler can be made for just a few bucks. What’s great about the cooler is that there is no cumbersome ice required. The box of soda can be stored in the fridge, then immediately insulated. This way you can still bring the same amount of drinks without the hassle of carrying all of that heavy ice!
