Lava Lamp Ornament: 

If you have a Christmas tree, chances are, it needs ornaments. They come in all different shapes and sizes, but have you ever considered a lava lamp ornament? In order to do this correctly, you’ll need an empty clear ornament, hot glue, vegetable oil, water, and food coloring.

     Fill the ornament 3/4 of the way up with vegetable oil. Fill the remainder with water and add food dye to the water. Once finished, hot glue the top of the ornament shut to seal in the liquid. The final product is somewhat heavy, so be sure to place it on a solid branch.

Super Snowglobe: 

     Create your own winter wonderland with this super snowglobe.

     You’ll need a mason jar, baby oil, an object that you want in the snowglobe, hot glue, and a small piece of styrofoam. 

     First, glue down the object on the inside of the mason jar lid. Then fill up the mason jar with the baby oil, along with crushed up pieces of styrofoam. The styrofoam should be crushed into small pieces before placed into the jar with the baby oil. Place hot glue around the rim of the mason jar then screw the lid on top to seal the snowglobe.

Hot Chocolate Spoon:

     Hot chocolate is a classic drink that everyone loves, so it’d make a perfect gift.

     You’ll need chocolate and a spoon. 

     Heat up the chocolate in a microwave or on the stove and pour it into the dip of the spoon. If the chocolate is being heated in a microwave, stir it after 30-second  increments.

     Add mini marshmallows or crushed candy canes into the chocolate for extra pizzazz. Stir the spoon into hot water or milk to make hot  chocolate.

     Now, whoever you give this present to will have a portable hot chocolate.
