This is a repost of a very popular 2014 craft! Let me know if you make it!
Yesterday was a big BIG day for my kids! They each had a fun school Christmas Party.
That tray above had big plans. That was the before, and here are the afters:
Snowman Marshmallow S’mores
You might remember that for Halloween, I made these adorable Ghost Peep S’mores as gifts for the kid’s classmates.
So when I was searching for a great classmate gift for Christmas, and I stumbled upon my friend Stacie’s adorable Snowman Marshmallow S’mores on her blog The Amazing Mess (fabulous blog, you should check it out!), I knew I had to make them!
I’m totally going to be known as the Crazy S’more Lady at the school! 😉 (Now to brainstorm an Easter S’more gift!)
Head on over to the Amazing Mess to get this super simple gift idea.
Marshmallow Snowmen Candy Sticks
Next, I needed a centerpiece for Lizzie’s classroom. I was in charge of decorations, and since I was sick with Strep Throat all last week, I was coming down to the wire! I saw these adorable Sugar Crystal Covered Snowmen and I knew I had to make them!
They were super simple to make:
- Light Karo Syrup
- Clean small paintbrush
- Large Marshmallows
- Candy Sticks (I got the long ones)
- White Sparkling Sugar
- Mini Oreo Cookies
- Fudge Frosting
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- Orange confetti sprinkles
- “Paint” the sides of each marshmallow with karo syrup and roll it around in the sparkling sugar to coat.
- Push 3 marshmalllows onto each Candy Stick
- Make a face using the mini chocolate chips (I just pushed in with the pointy side) and the orange confetti sprinkle (I had to put a bit of Karo Syrup on my sprinkle to make it stick)
- Take your oreos apart.
- Eat the side with the frosting 😉
- On the other side, use the fudge frosting to stick the rolo to the top and to attach the hat to the top marshmallow
After this point, I found a basket and stuck a small styrofoam block in it (just one that came in with a package). Next I stuck my candy stick Snowmen into the styrofoam and filled the bottom with mini marshmallows. I tied some ripped fabric for a pretty effect.
They were a real hit with the kids and they were pretty simple to execute!
Both of these projects were done in about an hour and a half at a frantic pace, but the results were well worth it!
What Christmas crafts have you done this year?
