Hot Cocoa ornaments

To start off this final countdown before Christmas my latest DIY for Project Wedding which will fit in perfectly with your holiday parties this week. Hot cocoa ornaments that are easy to make, pretty to look at and yummy to drink. Basically, the perfect holiday drink mix.

Filled with your favorite cocoa, smashed candy canes, and tiny marshmallows these ornaments will give a sweet new meaning to the traditional tree hangings. Once they are filled simply add warmed water, swirl around and enjoy.

See the full tutorial here and catch a glimpse of my simple trick to make each straw fit perfectly.

  2. oh my gosh, this is too incredible for words! the best idea i’ve seen in a long time. so unique.

    pea ess: thanks so much for your comment so i could find your awesomely creative blog.

  3. Maybe I’m just tired and not thinking straight…but are you actually able to drink FROM the ornament? We have a Secret Santa exchange, and I’d like to use this idea. IF you can drink from the ornament…how on Earth do you get the water in?

  4. I LOVE THIS! Where in the world do you download the warm heart warm hand label? I’ve been looking everywhere for it for the past hour :(
    Thanks so much!
