This cup/glass cover takes a bit of time to do but is great for the outdoors to keep insects out of drinks.


  • lace
  • beads
  • ribbon


  1. Cut the shape using a saucer.
  2. Line one side with ribbon then with beads.
  3. Stitch bead circles around then line the reverse side.

Notes... Have fun with the children, try different styles and materials with beads.

  • A necessity in autumn when the European wasps are about. They love drinks, imagine accidentally swallowing one if them!


  • These are gorgeous. Unfortunately my children would not have the patience to make these but I certainly would.


  • It’s very beautiful and what a great idea


  • What a great idea and if you make them bigger they can cover the bowls to stop the bugs so easy to make would be great for our outside meals also use heavier beads around the edges to stop them blowing off.

    • Exactly. A fun project that has a great practical use. Thanks.


  • Looks great! A bit too tricky for my kiddies at the moment but will remember for future! :-)

    • Something I should make for our drinks

      • Great to keep out the bees in the summer


  • I think I need one of these for me.


  • Had forgotten about these, use to have these for the milk jug. Must have a go at these ones.


  • A fantastic idea for a picnic or a b.b.q and so pretty! Thanks.


  • make a sensational present


  • looks lovely. Great idea, thank you.


  • Perfect solution for my current problems, will get my tweens onto this asap!


  • Cute diy idea but I use norwex for this purpose :)


  • Another style


  • So pretty! And so needed especially round this time of year with all the files and European wasps and other creepy crawlies


  • I have decided to make different ones and will be selling on Ebay from mid Dec onwards, as I have noticed a lot of interest here and elsewhere :)
