Today I wanted to share a cute idea for all of you who might need a last minute gift. I found this and loved the look of it. Of course I liked it, so I had to share.
For the hot cocoa part I used : Cocoa mix, chocolate chips, and marshmallows. If you wanted, you could also use peppermint candies.
I also used a mason jar and a funnel.
I started by putting the cocoa mix in the jar first. Once it was even, I added the chocolate chips and the marshmallows. Next I took some more supplies and made his face and collar.
I used : Bells, red pom-pom, scissors, thin red ribbon, thick red ribbon, eyes, hot glue gun, green pipe cleaners ( not pictured).
I started by randomly bending the pipe cleaners into antlers. I fixed them around until I liked how they looked. Once I had both antlers made, I glued them on the back of the jar. I then took a thick piece of ribbon and wrapped it around the neck of the jar to create a collar. After I had finished wrapping and folding the ribbon, I threaded the bells onto the thin red ribbon. I strung seven bells into a cluster. I then glued that cluster to the center of the collar. After that I attached his eyes and nose. I screwed on the lid, and DONE. I think this turned out really cute. It was very easy to make, and I think it would be fun to change the colors on this as well. You could take a crazy approach on it and make it whatever color scheme you need! I hope you all give this a try! See you guys tomorrow!
