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.

    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?

    Love this idea. It’s so original!

    I’m loving your photos as well. I’m a new blogger and the photography is still difficult for me at times.

    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!

      keecam, we didn’t provide the label as a download on this project. You can print or write in your own! Thanks!

        Victoria, if the labels aren’t available for download, then the following sentence shoul be removed from this post:

        “Plus grab the “warm hearts-warm hands” labels that are available for free download. ”

        I looked for the download both here and in the tutorial since you had said it was there. Frustrating!
