• Santa's Magical Cocoa

    Need an inexpensive last minute gift idea? Here's a delightful way to gift some homemade cocoa mix . . .

    You'll Need:


    a strip of tissue paper
    a Mason Jar
    Cocoa or Cappuccino Mix
    Modge Podge
    a small strip of feather ribbon
    Black felt or black paper

    For Rudolph You'll Need:
    Candy Cane
    a piece of brown pipe cleaner
    a tiny piece of red pip cleaner
    A black sharpie
    glue gun


    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 and Cappuccino/Coffee Mixes for the perfect filling . . .
