HOW TO MAKE This Christmas craft for kids
Step 1. Set out your coffee cups and spray them with blue spray paint. Leave to dry.
Step 2. Detach coffee sleeves and lay flat. Paint black and let dry.
Step 3. Add a thin layer of silver glitter paint over the black coffee sleeve and let dry.
Step 4. Lay out your embellishments. Here we used a branch with artificial snow and some styrofoam holly berries.
Step 5. Wrap the coffee sleeve around the coffee cup and secure with hot glue.
Step 6. Using the hot glue gun, position and secure your embellishments to the sleeve and coffee cup. Add glitter to the embellishments if you like.
Step 7. Fill with tissue or shredded paper, small gifts and a kind note.
Isn’t this a beautiful handmade Christmas craft? Make sure to help little hands when needed. Handling a glue gun is not easy for them.

  1. What an adorable project for a little one to make.. This is such a great, inexpensive gift to give teachers or family members and could also be filled with some goodies to. I just love this.

  2. This cup craft is a great idea. I will have to try making these with my friends little ones the next time they visit.

  3. We are planning a Christmas party for our homeschool friends. Some of the children are younger, so the wreath idea will be great! Even the older one will enjoy. Thank you for the ideas!

  4. What a great way for the little ones to “help”! And anyone who receives one of those homemade cuos is going to absolutely love them (no matter what gift is or isn’t in there).
