What is better than a nice mug of Hot Chocolate – also called Hot Cocoa – on a cold winter’s day? Not much! For today’s post 2 of my 5 nieces helped me create Cocoa for their dolls and we wanted to share our craft with you.
To make your doll her own mug of Hot Cocoa you will need:
- a creamer container that you would find at a coffee shop or restaurant (you will need to remove the cream and wash the small container)
- pipe cleaners in brown and white (I also had an iridescent pipe cleaner I used as whip cream)
- a pair of scissors
- a pencil
- a thick marker
- a nail or a push pin
- a ruler
Step 1- Empty and wash out your containers of creamer
Step 2– Using a marker, make two dots with a marker about 1/2 inch a part
Step 3– Use a nail or a push pin with help from a grown up to carefully create the holes for your pipe cleaner handle
Step 4– Cut 3 inches of your white pipe cleaner to create your handle. Bend it into the shape of the letter “C” and push the ends through the holes. Bend them so the handle is secure on the inside of the cup.
Step 5– Use your marker and wrap your brown pipe cleaner around it. Remove your curl from the pen and you have your “Cocoa” to place inside your cup
Step 6– repeat step 5 with your white or iridescent pipe cleaner – I used a pencil this time to make the whip cream smaller
Step 7– Place the “Cocoa” in the cup and the “whip cream” on top and your doll will be ready to enjoy her mug of Cocoa!
I had so much fun creating the doll sized hot Cocoa with my nieces and I hope you will enjoy making your own!
I look forward to sharing more fun crafts with you next week!
