How To Make A Santa Treat Cup
MATERIALS NEEDED –
- red cups
- black electrical tape
- gold art tape (or you can use yellow electrical tape – that looks cute too!)
- easy Christmas treats (our favorites are listed below if you need inspiration.)
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS –
Wrap a long piece of black electrical tape around the middle of the cup.
Cut four equal pieces of gold/yellow tape and place them over the black strip of tape in the shape of a square to form the belt buckle.
Now your cups are ready to be filled!
(Wouldn’t these be cute as Lumieres with tea lights lining your walkways?)
