Today's Homemade Christmas gift idea is stacked jar hot chocolate snowmen from Christmas Forever! Unfortunately she does not give us too many details how she made them, but from what I can tell they are stacked half sized mason jars filled with everything you need to make some delicious hot chocolate.

I think you could use some velcro to attach the jars and craft paint and ribbon to finish them off with all the details! Another idea for fall would be to fill these will soup making ingredients and decorate them as scarecrows.

Here are some different jar options for your snowmen. Keep in mind that these can be as big or as small as you want.

Bormioli Rocco Fido Round Clear Jar, 25-1/4-Ounce

Jarden Home Brands 12Pk 1/2Pt wide Mouth Jar Canning Jars

Grant Howard 50519 3.4-Ounce Pot Belly Clear Glass Spice Jar, Set of 24, Small

If you decide to make these please let us know how they turn out, I'd love hear!

Thanks for sharing! I am looking for cute ideas for a homemade Christmas. This is PERFECT! The snowmen are such a neat way to package the hot cocoa stand-by.

I also made these, except for the carrot nose I used the orange foam earplugs you can get in the sporting goods section of Walmart. I hot glued them.

Also I forgot… I used felt to steady the jars. I hot glues the felt circles to the bottoms of jar and tops and also attached Velcro strips to make them steadier. That way u don’t have to glue the jars together. Just an idea. Ill post a pic later of my finished project.
