~ Blogmas Day 23 ~ Last Minute DIY Gifts ~

Crafty, creative gifts are my favourite. Adding the personal touch to a gift brings a smile to every recipients face.


That in mind I set about making these candy cane hot chocolate bauble's , be careful you can't drop these like I did!!!


  • Empty Baubles from a craft shop
  • Hot Chocolate Powder
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Candy Canes
  • Ribbons
  • Tape


  • Fill half the bauble with hot chocolate powder, press down to compact.
  • Crush up a candy cane and add a layer on top of the chocolate powder.
  • Top with mini Marshmallows.
  • Seal bauble with a bit of tape. Try not to shake as layers may become combined.
  • Add same ribbons for both hanging and decoration. And maybe a mini candy cane...

Sweet Stockings

This was an easy one



  • Assorted Sweets
  • Brown Paper
  • Red Thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • Scissors


Cut your paper into stocking shapes.
Fill with sweets
Sew all edges closed

Reindeer Poop


  • Maltesers
  • Cellophane Bags
  • Coloured Cards for labelling

Label reads:

"I've hear you've been naughty,

so here's the scoop,

all your getting is

Reindeer Poop"

Retro Sweet Box

I've seen these everywhere but you can easily make your own after a trip to your local sweet shop.
