When the weather’s cold outside, like it is here right now. And covered in snow. It’s the perfect time to warm up with a real cup of hot cocoa while making our Hot Cocoa Craft, complete with Felt Heart Marshmallows, because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!
Growing up, my mom would make a cup of hot cocoa from the packets when I came in on really cold days. The ones with the little marshmallows were always the best kind. Even though they melted right away, I always felt like it was missing something if they weren’t there. And then I’d pile on more, bigger marshmallows from the bag. The more, the better has apparently always been my motto. Thankfully, you can have as many marshmallows you want in our Hot Cocoa Craft!
For our Hot Cocoa Craft you will need to print the Free Hot Cocoa Craft Printable Template. Then, cut the cup pieces out of white cardstock. You will also need brown and white felt, 5” cardstock cards, black fine-tip marker, scissors, and glue.
Hot Cocoa Craft
- Hot Cocoa Craft Printable Template
- White cardstock
- 5” cardstock cards – winter colors; blue, purple, red, etc.
- Felt – dark brown and white/off-white
- Black fine-tip marker
Print the Hot Cocoa Craft Template on white cardstock. Cut out the pieces.
Using the main cup template as a guide, fold a full sheet of white cardstock in half. Line the edge of the main cup template against the fold and cut out so that it’s like a card.
Line up the front cup template to the front of the cup and cut out the top section.
Cut the handle from the template as well.
Cut out the felt template. Line up against a piece of brown cardstock and cut the shape out.
Glue onto the back piece of the main cup, leaving a rim around the top.
Glue both pieces of the cup together, leaving the top by the felt open. Glue the handle onto the side of the cup.
Glue the cup onto a card of cardstock. Using the black fine-tip marker, draw a line of detail around the rim of the cup and handle. Draw steam lines coming from the hot cocoa.
Cut small hearts out of the white or off-white cardstock. Stick the hearts to the brown felt.
The hearts can also be stored in the pocket of the cup.
