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 of dabs of hot glue from the glue gun.

Cut out a small rectangle for Santa’s belt buckle and attach it to the red stripe around the jar.

To make Rudolph simply draw a couple of 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 it with hot glue if needed. Add a tiny piece of red pipe cleaner that has been folded in half to make Rudolph’s 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 . . .
