Anyway...I come to you with The 12 Days of Christmas, hosted by the lovely Faith P. You can go to her blog HERE to see all the other wonderful bloggers joining us in this fun Christmas blog link up.
To kick off the 12 Days of Christmas, I'm going to start off with a Christmas gift DIY that I did this year for several presents. It's super simple, very pretty, and tons of fun too!
Christmas in a Mug
Sooooo...to start off, you are going to need:
A Pair of Fluffy Socks
|'Cause who doesn't love a pair of fluffy socks? I think I wear these kind of socks all winter long. Lovely to snuggle up with a warm cup of something hot, a blanket, a book, and these oh so soft and fluffy socks!|
A Candy Bar
|Any candy bar works just fine! Kit Kat, Snickers, Mars Bar, etc. For this mug, I'm using a Coffee Crisp, but I also grabbed a couple Kit Kats for other mugs.|
A Variety of ChocolatesChoice of chocolate is completely up to you! To make it more Christmas-y, you can grab chocolates that are wrapped holiday style. And really, Bulk Barn is the place to go, y'all! I seriously love that place.
|Peppermint Hersheys. SO good. And the wrappers add great colour to the mug!|
|Ooh, and these darling chocolates-wrapped-like-presents. Perfect for the theme!|
|Aaaand, almond Hersheys. Course...the wrapper again. Gold accents - perfect.|
|Just some mini candy canes to stick randomly in the cup. I was aiming for a heart...but it wouldn't really stay xD |
(proof of this later on)
Other Small Gifts
One Big, Glorious, Red and White Peppermint Stick
Ok so! To assemble the mug, you're first gonna take your oh-so-fluffy socks and lay 'em out flat. Then put the candy bar on one end and roll it up! Then squish it into the mug so that it fills it perfectly!
Then stick the gift card in the back and the big peppermint stick next to the candy bar.
Now for the mini candy canes. As you can see here, I attempted the heart and it didn't look TOO bad...
But then they closed together because yep, that's what they wanted to do. I "sprinkled" both types of Hersheys into the cup, but I will admit, I did a teeeeny bit of rearranging because some of the colours were clumping together.
Then to finish it off, add the chocoate presents.
And voila! You're done!
And that wraps it up for today! Hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you've ever tried this before!
