I don’t know about you but I love this time of year! I love decorating for the holidays and I LOVE making small gifts for all my favorite people. It’s also the perfect time of year to turn everything into Santa. I feel like you just can’t go wrong with a fun Santa craft project like these adorable yarn wrapped Santa DIY Christmas treat holders. Aren’t they the cutest thing ever? Fill them with cookies or candy and you have the perfect gift for your friends, neighbors, and more. And, I won’t blame you if you keep one or two for yourself.
All you need is your handy dandy glue gun, red and white yarn, a few black buttons, and small pots or containers. Then, turn on a Hallmark Christmas movie and you’re ready to get your craft on.
Supplies needed to make your own DIY Christmas treat holders:
First, run a small band of glue around the base of your flower pot. Quickly add your red yarn and hold in place until glue dries. This is where you’ll be glad you use the finger guards.
Continue to wrap red yarn around the flower pot until you reach the lip of the pot. Then continue to wrap yarn around and around. I did three layers of yarn. Glue end using your glue gun.
Run a small band of glue around the top of the flower pot and glue white yarn in place. Continue to wrap white yarn around the entire top of the flower pot.
Add two black buttons to front of flower pot and now it’s time to fill our Santa DIY Christmas treat holders. I filled a few with homemade cookies for a fun neighbor gift and teacher gift.
