Santa's Magical Cocoa
Need an inexpensive last minute gift idea? Here's a delightful way to gift some homemade cocoa mix . . .
a strip of tissue paper
a Mason Jar
Cocoa or Cappuccino Mix
a small strip of feather ribbon
Black felt or black paper
For Rudolph You'll Need:
a piece of brown pipe cleaner
a tiny piece of red pip cleaner
A black sharpie
Wrap the jar around the middle with a strip of tissue paper, attach it with modge podge (or homemade decoupage glue). Let it dry.
While it's drying, cut out a small piece of tissue paper for the top of the jar. The easiest way to do so is to trace the inside of a canning jar top, then cut it out with scissors.
Glue the round circle to the top of the jar cover. Attach the feather ribbon to the cap with a couple dabs of hot glue from the glue gun.
Cut out a small rectangle for santa's belt buckle and attach it to the red strip around the jar.
To make Rudolph simply draw a couple eyes with a black sharpie, add a dot of white in the middle. To make the antlers, bend a small piece of brown pipe cleaner, attach with hot glue, if needed. Add a tiny piece of red pipe cleaner that has been folded in half to make Rudolphs nose.
This fun santa cocoa jar is suitable for all ages and costs less than $2 to make, a fun gift the entire family can enjoy. Check out our Hot Chocolate/Cocoa
