I had my monthly MOPS(Mothers of Preschoolers) meeting this morning, and I just knew it was going to be fun...each table's assignment was to bring in an idea or actual item that was handmade to share with the group for Christmas gifting.
OF COURSE, I was in seventh heaven! It was so neat to see not only are these women AMAZING Mommies...but SO Creative! I am inspired every time I log onto the blogging craft world, but to see it in person...well, let's just say, I'm almost tempted to start a Mommy Craft Group in my city. Who's with me? No, seriously....email me, we'll talk!
And really quick, before I get to what I brought to share, I want to give a BIG 'OL WELCOME to my new readers that just learned I had a blog today....and all those that I just learned have been lurking around in the shadows. (every once in awhile, COMMENT! I'd love to know I'm not just talking to
Alright, on with the show, man....Let's make a SNOWMAN! (hehe)
1. Start with a Half Pint Canning Jar. (these are the Better Homes & Gardens Brand from Wal-Mart...I love the top)
2. Fill it with Mini-Marshmallows
Different jars will have different openings, so once you find that perfect balance, just use that as your pattern!
Everything up to this step, including ALL materials cost me ~$2.50 per gift set to make 12.
7. Thanks to my new friend, Amy...there can be MORE to this Snowman...take another jar and fill it with Hot Cocoa Mix. (I didn't have a large jar, so I used the individual serving packets. It fits 5 servings)
GREAT GIFTS FOR TEACHERS, NEIGHBORS, HOST/HOSTESSES FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON!
I think this qualifies as a "GIFT for GUYS" as I'm sure even male teachers, neighbors, etc. love them some Hot Chocolate....so I'm linking up with KOJODesigns Gift for Guys Party.
