- Contents for gift box such as hot chocolate ingredients, cookies, or other fun winter treats.
How To Get Started On This Easy Snowman Craft
Assemble the pillow boxes – they will come packed flat, so simply fold the ends over to make a gift box.
Cut long strips of fabric or ribbon and wrap them around the lower half of the pillow box like a scarf. This snowman craft is easier than you think!
Next, cut a hat and ‘carrot’ nose out of cardstock and attach them using glue.
Using a black marker, draw on your snowman’s mouth.
Now your snowman is ready for filling.
Tip: You can use individual sachets of hot cocoa, and then fill small Ziploc bags with mini marshmallows, or you can make up your own small hot chocolate bags like these. Just place hot chocolate mix and marshmallows into a small bag, fold over the top edge a couple of times and pop a peg on it to keep it closed.
