Easy DIY Christmas Hot Cocoa Stencils
Before we get to the DIY Christmas Hot Cocoa Stencils, I should tell you that the romantic comedy ‘The Holiday’ inspired this craft. It’s about two women, Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, who decide to get away from their ‘guy problems’ by swapping homes with each other. One lady flies to England and the other the United States, where they both meet and fall in love with a local gentlemen.
Now, there is one particular scene in this movie that really warmed my heart. It’s when Cameron Diaz meets Jude Law’s young daughters and they drink hot cocoa together. It’s such a cute moment and I knew I had to include hot cocoa in my movie project. At first, I was going to create a hot cocoa recipe, but there are already a ton of hot cocoa recipes. Then it hit me…DIY Chirstmas Hot Cocoa Stencils to decorate the top of the hot cocoa!
