Hi there! I’m so excited to participate in Jen’s holiday guest series. My name is Heidi and I blog at Honeybear Lane. I love to DIY pretty much everything–crafts, home decor, sewing, cooking, whatever! We are building a new house so pretty soon I’ll have a lot more projects…I’m super excited!
- Mug (mine was from IKEA)
- Sharpie, fine tip
- Hot chocolate mix
- Mini marshmallows
- Plastic favor bag
- Optional: paper straws or wooden spoon
Sharpie mugs are a great gift and really easy. First I just practiced my handwriting on a scrap paper until I came up with a style I liked. Then I just drew it free-hand onto the mug. Let it dry overnight. Then you bake it in by placing in a cold oven and baking for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Turn off the oven and let it cool completely before removing. Also I recommend washing by hand rather than in a dishwasher.
After it’s ready, put the plastic party favor bag in the mug and open it up. Fill it up to the brim with hot chocolate mix, then top with mini marshmallows. Close it up with some baker’s twine and add in some straws and a spoon if you want. I like the way it looks!
Thanks Heidi! Such a super cute idea! And, I love the straws and spoon too. Heidi has tons of cute ideas on her blog. Here are a few I think you’ll love:
