Hello everyone! Today, I have a great last minute gift idea that is perfect if you’re low on funds but need to make some small gifts for neighbors, coworkers or friends.
Now I can’t take full credit. The FUN Committee and I made these hot chocolate mixes as little office presents to accompany the ornament we received at our annual Holiday luncheon and I think they were a big hit! I haven’t used mine but I’m going to bring it home so I can test it out.
It’s super simple.
All you need is…
- some mason jars
- hot coco mix (we used Walmart brand plain)
- some hot chocolate add ins (we had marshmallows, chocolate chips and crushed candy canes)
- Decorating supplies
For these mixes, I put in some marshmallows then added the hot coco mix and some more marshmallows, candy cane pieces etc. Then you screw on the top,w rap a a ribbon around the jar, pop in a candy cane with a festive gift tag and you’re done!
These are also very inexpensive too. It came out to around $2.50 per person and we had lots of supplies left over to make more. I think this little DIY would be great for acquaintances since it’s not too pricey to make a lot of them.
Do you have an inexpensive Christmas DIY idea?

We’re in the thick of college football season and I wanted to come up with a way to support my Miami Hurricanes here in Atlanta. I was meandering in and out of the aisles of Michaels trying to figure out what to make. I originally wanted to make a wreath with ribbon all over but I saw this wooden plaque and thought it would be a great and easy idea.
Everything was plain wood so I painted the the plaque orange on one side with the back being green. I also added green polka dots to the front to create some whimsy. For the letters, I spray painted them white and then added some Martha Stewart glitter sealer. The final piece was a brown piece of glitter paper that I cut into a football shape and did the white with puffy paint. Some helpful tips, when painting the plaque use some plastic cups to prop it up, it makes it a lot easier to get the edges. Also don’t forget to seal everything with modpodge, that’s how it gets nice and shiny.
I think it came our great.
This is the new coral bulletin board for my over my desk area. It was so easy and simple to do. I love Pinterest for finding this fun project. I got the how-to from the blog two twenty one. You can find the how-to link here.
The thing I love most about it is the fabric. It’s durable and the colors look great with the rest of my living room.
The board before any decorations.
