Hot Cocoa Christmas Ornament

Categories: Crochet, Holiday, Winter

Nothing is better on a cold winter night than a nice warm cup of hot cocoa. As a result, I thought a cup of cocoa would be a perfect Christmas ornament. There are lots of things you can add to your cocoa, marshmallows, candy canes, or even a swirl of whipped cream. I usually drink mine plain, but I thought a little something on top would be fun so I decided to add a dollop of whipped cream. If you would rather add marshmallows you could just add some tiny circles on top. The ornament is stuffed with Poly-Fil® Premium Fiber Fill so it is lightweight and perfect for hanging on your tree. It would be fun as a play food toy for kids too.

  • Crocheted Cocoa

Step Five

Next you will assemble your mug of cocoa

Stuff the mug portion, then sew the brown circle into the mug stitching into the loops left open in round 14. You will be have 24 stitches around the circle and 30 around the mug so you can skip every 5th stitch on the mug or stitch into the same stitch on the brown in the 4th and 5th stitchesof the mug

You can add more stuffing as needed while stitching the top closed

Next, add the handle to the side of the mug, stitch the ends of the tube to the side of the mug.

Last, add the whipped topping to the top by stitching it to the brown circle.
