I didn't have much time for making Christmas cards this year, so I ended up whipping some clean and simple cards. I did, however, find some time to make cute Christmas tree ornaments I'd pinned in previous years. Here's a hot chocolate mug ornament, patterned off the one by Loraine at Breakfast for Dinner.
I wasn't able to find mini plastic mugs, so I took a mini shot glass and used hot glue to make the handles. I drew a handle on a piece of scrap paper, then squeezed a think line of glue over it. The glue peeled off well, but was flat on the paper side, so I squeezed a second line of glue on the flat side so it would have dimension as well. I then glued the handle to the cup.
I painted the edges of the mug with brown paint, then when it was dry, took a circle of construction paper with the edges clipped in and carefully shoved the edges inside the mug while leaving a flat top. I painted the top and cut a hole.
Once the paper was dry I twisted a red and white pipe cleaner together and bent it into a small candy cane, snipping it to size, then glued it in and glued some white pom poms around it as marshmallows.
