Repurposed creamer containers make great hot chocolate containers to give as gifts. I added a crocheted scarf, but a cut-up piece of holiday material or felt would work also. I drew the faces on with permanent markers. I wrote instructions for making a cup of hot chocolate on the reverse side.
The Chic Technique: Coffee Creamer Snowmen are the perfect Christmas gifts for parents from their children! Teachers are going to love this recycled project made from plastic coffee creamer containers.
Now THIS is a brilliant way to reuse your leftover Coffee mate bottles!
Solar lit snowmen made from recycled coffee mate bottles. Paint the tops black. Cut the bottoms off and paint inside and outside white. Glue on buttons, eyes, nose, scarf and mouth if you have room. Poke an awl threw each side and slip a pipe cleaner threw them, wrap the end around your finger to shape the hand and twist the very end around to make a thumb. I used a sticky putty to hold them on to the light. Hopefully they hold when it freezes.
