Looking for a quick, last minute handmade gift idea?  This painted glass canister is perfect for holding hot cocoa mix or candy!

Whew….if you’re like me, you’re frantically trying to get last minute Christmas gifts made.
I like to make a hot cocoa gift that is a mix of instant powder and crushed mint candies.
Mmmm…smells and tastes good!
But the container it’s delivered in needs to look good, too!


When I saw these glass containers at Dollar Tree, the lines reminded me of candy canes.  So I pulled out my glass paint and got to work.


If you don’y have glass paint, try nail polish!
After my paint had dried, I felt like it still needed some Christmas bling.  So I pulled out my Mod Podge Sparkle and painted that on to make my canister shimmer.
Fast, frugal, and fabulous!
You could whip up several of these easily, and they’d make darling gifts for teachers, neighbors, and other special people in your life.
