My daughter and I have a tradition of giving homemade gifts to her teachers for Christmas. Something simple, usually something edible and something she can help with. This year we made her teachers DIY Christmas Ornaments With Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates, and they might just be my favorite holiday teacher gift ever.
Not only are they adorably festive, but they are very easy to make. Easy enough that we have plans to make a dozen of these DIY ornaments for various teachers and coaches, as soon as we stock up on more Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates.
These Christmas ornaments are a fun and crafty way to spread a little holiday cheer with The Hershey Company. The recipient can enjoy the ornament for a while and then easily open the ornament to enjoy the treats inside.
DIY Christmas Ornaments
- Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates in red, white and green foils
- Clear plastic ornaments that split in half
- Electrical tape in red, white and black
- Gold glitter tape
- Black and white buttons
- Plaid ribbon
- 5/8 inch red ribbon
- Hot glue
Sort the Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates by colors and fill the plastic ornaments. I used nearly three bags of Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates to get enough red, green, and silver chocolates to fill three large ornaments.
After filling the ornaments it is time to decorate them to look like Santa, an elf and a snowman.
To create the Santa ornament, wrap black electrical tape around the middle of the ornament filled with red Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates. Next I cut a piece of gold glitter tape to form a belt buckle. If you can’t find the gold tape, you could always use gold glitter ribbon or paper and a bit of hot glue.
To create the elf ornament, wrap white electrical tape around the middle of the ornament filled with green Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates. Next wrap red electrical tape around the ornament overlapping the white tape, but leaving a bit of the white tape exposed. Glue a white button in the middle of the tape.
Finish by tying a ribbon through the top of the Santa and elf ornaments to hang.
To create the snowman ornament, glue three black buttons down the middle of the ornament filled with silver Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates. Use a plaid ribbon (I used one with wire edges) to tie a large bow. Loop the red ribbon through the bow and tie it through the top of the ornament to hang.
PS – the gift tags would be perfect with these ornaments too!
