Quick Holiday Gift for Teachers

I can provide step-by-step directions; leave a comment.
While daughter Emily and I made these cute snowmen as party favors for Charlotte's first birthday party, I think they'd make sweet, quick holiday gifts for teachers.

It's a cute way to gift two helpings of hot chocolate mix with a marshmallow topping. 

Craft ingredients:
  • Two CLEAN (no adhesives) baby food jars with lids
  • Black cardstock to make stove top hat
  • Ribbon for the hat
  • One brown pipe cleaner, for arms.
  • Pink (or other color) fleece cut into a scarf and fringed
  • Sharpie Paint marker - orange for the nose
  • Sharpie Marker - black
  • Two Googly eyes
  • Three small black buttons
  • Glossy accents or another adhesive that dries clear
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks, to glue the top jar/bottom jar together
  • Hot cocoa mix, marshmallows to fill
