Hot Chocolate Snowmen






I'm so excited to share these with you guys!!  I haven't seen anything like this out here on blogland.  They came out just how I pictured them in my mind.  These were tons of fun to make and easy.

I started with two baby food containers that were 2nd food size and one that was the 1st food size.

I painted the big ones white and the small one black.  I gave them each two coats allowing it to dry completely in between.



Then I painted a face and some buttons.


The containers were then filled with goodies.  I then hot glued the containers together.

The best part was I only had to go buy mini marshmallows, and mini candy canes.  I had everything else so out of pocket expense was about $3 and that will be able to make tons of them to giveaway.
