Snowman Treat Cup

Hi Design Dazzle readers!  I am Ashley from Simply Designing and I am so excited to be here on Toni’s blog today sharing with you a fun and simple way to make this holiday season a little more bright!  I have two kiddos that love to give gifts to their friends, and we also have a lot of neighbor and friend gifts to hand out this year, so I wanted to come up with a fun and simple idea, that didn’t take more then a few minutes to throw together but would make a really fun and unique gift idea for the holidays.  So I came up with this really fun Snowman Treat Cup!  So today I am cuddling up with a warm cup of my Caramel Apple Spice Cider and creating these fun little treat cups to giveaway this year!

This is one of those great gifts that literally takes minutes to throw together, and is inexpensive too!

To create this Snowman Treat Cup, you will need:

  • White paper cups
  • Sharpie markers (black, orange, brown, red)
  • Candy, small gift or homemade goodies to put into the cup
  • Cello bag (optional)


Supplies 650

I have almost zero artistic skills and honestly, my 8 year old could probably draw a snowman better then I can.  So if I can do this, I promise you can too!

You will just grab your markers and start creating snowman face.  I just did little black dots for the eyes, mouth and buttons.  I used an orange sharpie for the carrot nose.  A red sharpie for the scarf.  And a brown sharpie for the arms.

It is really THAT simple!

And then you can fill it with the treat of your choice!  You can either fill it with candy, a small gift (like gloves or nail polish) or homemade goodies!  The options are truly endless!

If you would like, you can even place it in a cello bag, tie with ribbon and hand out that way!

It is such a fun and unique way to package a gift that doesn’t take too much time or effort!
