Here's a simple and frugal homemade gift idea for Christmas.  This would be a great teacher gift, neighbor gift, or a gift idea for anytime you need something small and frugal.

Homemade Gift Idea: Snowman Cocoa in a Jar

Supplies needed:

  • jar (could use a mason jar, but I just reused a pasta sauce jar)
  • black and orange craft paint for the face
  • black felt or fabric for the hat
  • ribbon
  • gift tag
  • candy cane
  • mini marshmallows
  • cocoa mix

 

If you buy a huge can of cocoa mix, this homemade gift is even more frugal.

 

  • First, paint the snowman face on the jar.  One of these examples uses an orange felt "carrot" for the nose instead of orange paint.  
  • Fill the jar halfway with cocoa mix (I put mine in a ziploc baggie first).  
  • Add mini marshmallows to fill up the jar.
  • Tie the black felt or fabric around the lid using a piece of ribbon.
  • Tie the gift tag and candy cane around the middle of the snowman, like a scarf.

I've seen some snowman cocoa gifts on pinterest that are DARLING!! They're stacked 3 high and I think they're made out of baby food jars.

That's a great idea for reusing baby food jars.
