Are you looking for the perfect Christmas ornaments to gift this year? This DIY Hot Chocolate Ornament makes the perfect gift for these cold winter months!
This year, we got out our tree and decided we wanted some new Christmas ornaments, so you’ll be seeing several fun tutorials here over the next couple of weeks. Today, I’m sharing our DIY Hot Chocolate Ornament tutorial with you.
I love giving ornaments as gifts because it’s something people do tend to cherish year after year. It’s amazing how hanging an ornament on a tree can bring back so many memories!
People can choose to hang them on their tree for the season, then enjoy a nice hot cup of cocoa while they’re packing up the tree. Then they can re-use the clear ornament the following year for crafting or a gift for someone else!
This tutorial is to make 1 ornament. If you want to make several as gifts this year, just multiply the ingredients by the number you need.
