as promised, i made one of the DIY sweet treat gifts i posted last week and i'm so excited to share it with you. i made rhiannon's hot cocoa mix, with a few changes to the decorations. if you don't know rhi or her beautiful blog, hey gorgeous, click over right away! rhi is an insanely talented wedding designer/planner with impeccable taste and just today relaunched her company.
she handcrafts so many special elements for her clients' weddings and does all the floral design herself, and what i love most is how much she genuinely cares about her clients and creating a memorable, unique day for them.
oh, and her DIYs and crafts are so very lovely, which is why i bookmarked this cocoa mix tutorial months ago!
this DIY makes for great favors or gifts for the holidays - it's easy to make and fun to share!
hop over to hey gorgeous for step-by-step directions, but really, all you need is cocoa mix, mini marshmallows, peppermint bark squares, mini bailey's (or kahlua) bottles, ribbon, and a fabric of your choice.
fill each jar with an equal amount of cocoa, place two squares of peppermint bark in each, and top with 'mallows. for the fabric, cut a circle about 1 inch larger in diameter than the opening of your jar. place fabric circle over the opening and seal the lid.
and as you can see, there are lots of ways to pretty up you jars. i opted for classic red and white striped fabric and red, silver, and gold bows as toppers. and for our family members of age, a mini bottle of baileys tied with glitter ribbon.
