I am a reluctant crafter.
It’s true. It took me a while to even admit that I enjoy the world of homemade bedazzled miscellaneousness. It took me even longer to cop to it here.
However, now that everyone knows of my love for diaper cakes (wow, that just sounds wrong), I can show off some more of my crafty awesomeness. And by awesomeness I mean I can impress others with minimal effort or skill.
Today I’m going to show you how I create what I like to call the “when-a-holiday-card-is-too-little, a-gift-card-is-too-impersonal, and a-$20-thing-is-too-much” gift.
Catchy, isn’t it?
Step 1: Assemble your materials
You will need the following:
- hot chocolate (duh)
- chocolate chips
- disposable plastic pastry bags (12″)
- towel for easy clean up
- little elf helper(s)
Step 2: Scoop in 2/3 cup of hot chocolate to a pastry bag
Step 3: Add a handful of marshmallows
Step 4: Add a handful of chocolate chips as the top layer
Step 5: Twist the top of bag and secure with a rubber band. Add festive ribbon.
Step 6: Repeat with helper elves
And VOILA! You now know a super cheap, easy, and fast way to give a homemade gift this holiday season.
But please don’t give me one.
My dirty little secret? I don’t like hot chocolate.
Your comments make me want to deck the halls.
