Turning Your White Hot Chocolate Into a Snowman Gift Jar

    After making a few batches of white hot chocolate, it only seems right to share the love. Certainly a plain jar of hot chocolate goodness would be gift enough.  But why not make it a little extra festive?  A snowman just makes it that much more fun!

      All you need to get started is your jar of white hot chocolate, a couple of pipe cleaners, some red felt.  Of course some scissors and a hot glue gun will help too!

     Wrap the felt around the lid of the jar, tacking it on with a few drops of hot glue.  

     I used a scrap piece of felt to give the illusion of a scarf and added the pipe cleaners as earmuffs.

     MiMi braided some embroidery thread to tie off the snowman's hat, then I painted on a carrot nose.  I searched high and low for my black tempera paint, but couldn't find it.  So, I grabbed a good old Sharpie and added his eyes that way.  It wasn't what a I had in mind, but it ended up being easier and worked just as well!

     Wouldn't you be happy to get a snowman filled with hot chocolate?  It is perfect for a warm treat after building a much colder version of a snowman outside!


  1. Oh Carlee, I love how creative you are. These will make the perfect gift for Christmas!!
    You can look at YouTube videos which are helpful in learning crochet stitches. Once you learn it's fun and there are so many things to make!!
    Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by.

    1. I will have to check out some videos. My mom and aunt tried to teach me to knit a number of years ago, but I knit so tightly that it made my hands hurt and every stitch was a fight! Maybe I need to take a deep breath and make a cup of cocoa before I try to crochet!

  2. Carlee, your snowman is so cute, and yes, I definitely would love a Snowman filled with Hot chocolate to warm me up! =)

  3. Carlee, you so topped even yesterday with this hot chocolate week by putting it in this adorable jar! I think I would love to make these as gifts since so many of my friends and family like white chocolate like I do!! Love!!

    1. Thank you! We had so much fun playing around the day we did these. Hot chocolate week has been one of my favorite projects so far!
