If you’re looking for cute little gifts to give friends, teachers, or neighbors, look no further than these adorable DIY hot chocolate mix ornaments. They work as Christmas ornaments but contain real hot cocoa mix along with some pretty add-ins. That makes this quick and easy craft a great project for package tie-ons or hostess gifts. The secret to these sweet ornaments are the teeny, tiny milk bottles!
These David Tutera mini milk bottles are the perfect vessels for cute DIY hot chocolate mix ornaments! I prefer these bottles over traditional glass bulb ornaments, which are not made for food use, and can sometimes have shards of glass at the tops. Just say no to putting edible mixes into bulbs, and yes to adorable bottles!
- David Tutera Mini Milk Bottles
- Hot Chocolate Mix (One envelope per bottle.)
- Christmas Sprinkles
- Chocolate Chips
- Dehydrated Mini Marshmallows
- Darice Red Ribbon
- Darice Baker’s Twine
- Darice Scissors
Step 1. Remove the bottle’s cork. Put the contents of one envelope of hot cocoa mix into the glass bottle.
Move the spout of the funnel around to evenly spread the sprinkles to the edges of the bottle.
I got my dehydrated mini marshmallows in the coffee supply section of my local Cash & Carry.
Step 5. Put the cork securely into the bottle. Tie a 12″ piece of baker’s twine around the neck of the bottle, knotting it into place. Tie a knot in the end of the strings as well, to create an ornament hanger.
Step 6. Tie a piece of red ribbon around the neck of the bottle to complete the ornament.
