Add a touch of comfort and warmth to your home with some simple winter crafts. Decorate your space with Hot Cocoa Wall Decor from Candace Jedrowicz and channel the best aspects of the season. Leave it up all year - this cup will never need to be reheated.

Hot Cocoa Wall Decor
 

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
  • Foam core board
  • Craft knife
  • Sand paper or nail file
  • Decorative paper
  • Brown acrylic paint
  • White craft foam for marshmallows
  • Scissors
  • Clear gloss sealer
  • Glitter glue
  • Hanging wire
  • Needle tool
  • Hot Chocolate Wall Art Template

Instructions:

  1. Print the template and cut out the whole cup.  Trace on foam core board.
     
  2. Use a fresh craft blade to cut out the whole cup.
     
  3. Cut the cup rim and handle off the template, trace and cut as before.
     
  4. Sand the edges of the foam core board until smooth.
     
  5. Make 2 holes with needle tool on the whole cup piece – 2″ from the top.
     
  6. On the front of the whole cup piece, wear a groove between the 2 holes for the wire to lay flat between the front and back cup pieces.
     
  7. Feed the wire ends through the holes from front to back.  Twist the ends together on the back side.
     
  8. Spread Tacky Glue on the back of the partial cup piece, lay on the whole cup piece and put a bit of weight on the top while drying.
     
  9. Paint the whole piece brown and allow to dry.
     
  10. Cut decorative paper and glue in place.  Cut a 1/4″ rim of paper to glue across the very top to represent the back rim of the cup, leaving an oval of brown paint exposed for the hot chocolate.
     
  11. Cut bits of white craft foam for marshmallows and glue in place.
     
  12. Dot glitter glue where you’d like it to be.
     
  13. Add a clear gloss sealer to the “liquid” in the cup -the exposed brown paint.
