Blogmas Day 9: Cocoa Ornament Craft

A couple of years ago, I made these really cute ornaments that I put cocoa ingredients in and put on the tables of our Christmas party at church. I thought that since I have the pictures of what I used and the beautiful ending product, I would share that with you.

They make a cute gift or stocking stuffer too. 😉

First, you start with clear ornaments, if you can find them. This year, I could not find what I was looking for. I bought these boxes at Walmart.

I bought 3 boxes

Next, you will need cocoa to add to the ornaments. You can add from a packet or from a container. It’s up to you. I used packets because it was what I had.

You can’t leave out the sprinkles, and decorations. So, I added these to each ornament after I had put the cocoa in. I stuck to one type of sprinkle per ornament, but you can mix and match and do what works for you. I added the pearls to each after the sprinkles were put in.

Sugar pearls, ribbon, and holiday sprinkles

Before I put in the sprinkles, I used the ribbon and surrounded the outside of the ornament for decoration. You’ll want to do this before you add cocoa or it will be a little messy when you tip the ornament to put the ribbon on. I learned the hard way.

The sprinkles looked so cute and the pearls added a classy look to them when the sprinkles were all put in. Sadly, I didn’t take a picture of the pearls, but trust me on this. Look out cute they look!

I thought they came out so adorable!

After all the cocoa, sprinkles, and ribbons were on the ornaments, I had to put the top back on and I added these cute gold bows to the top to complete the look.

Complete!

A lovely lady from our church decorated each table with these beautiful center pieces and I thought my ornaments looked really cute around them. What do you think?

I thought it made an adorable addition and people got to take them home afterward.

There you have it. A simple and cute craft that doesn’t take a lot of time or money to put together. I hope you will give it a try and even come up with other ideas to add to these adorable ornaments.

Until next time,

Ruth
