Are you ready? Christmas is only 9 days away! If you are in need of an easy last-minute gift, look no further. Grab a few empty jars, a piece of paper, some hot cocoa mix and get crafting.
Who doesn’t love hot cocoa with mini marshmallows? It is a wintertime staple around our house. There are so many fun ways to package up hot cocoa and marshmallows, making it a fun and easy gift to give to anyone. Tie on a peppermint candy spoon and it becomes perfection!
Spaghetti jars are my favorite when giving treats as a gift. They are big enough so you don’t feel stingy with your treats, but small enough that filling it with goodies won’t break the bank. Wrap a strip of patterned paper around the jar and add a chalkboard label, then tie on a spoon, or a few, depending on who will get the gift.
These marshmallows and cocoa are packaged in an old Smuckers jelly jar. Sometimes I like to keep unlabeled gifts on hand just in case a holiday visitor pops in. I embellished this jar with a strip of patterned paper and a chalkboard envelope seal.
One quick way to cover the lid of an upcycled jar–without the mess and and hassle of paint–is to create a paper cover. Create a lid cover by cutting a circle that is about 2.5″ wider in diameter than the lid you are covering.
Spritz both sizes of the paper with water to make it more pliable. Gently fold the damp paper around the jar lid and secure with a rubber band until the paper is dry. Remove the rubber band and embellish as desired after the paper is dry.
