    Where did the cute glitter container (for the hot cocoa) come from?! Thanks!

      The one we used came from Michael’s. You can also use a large baby food jar! Someone else used that and it turned out adorable!

  9. Jessica December 20, 2015 at 3:47 pm -

    How adorable!

  10. Miri December 17, 2015 at 11:17 am -

    I love this! I don’t have the right beads either, or white, red, or brown paint, but my mom just told me we’re going to Michael’s, so I guess soon I will have them! I can’t wait to make this! Love the crafts Rudy! BTW where did you get the skis? They are adorable!

    Brenda:They are Commuinion Cups. You can get them at a Christian Bookstore, but I get mine from the Church my family and I go to. Hope this helps! ~Olivia Wilson ?

  12. Brenda December 14, 2015 at 12:13 pm -

    Can you tell me where you got the containers for the marshmellows, peppermints etc.

  13. Olivia Wilson December 13, 2015 at 12:03 am -

    Yay! I finished mine! (It looks awful?)
    The toppings my dolls have are: Peppermint sticks, Peppermint candies, Marshmallows, Candy(from your “Concession Candy” video), and Oreos. We also made Cinnamon sticks, but they didn’t turn out and didn’t look quite right. I want to make the Whipped Cream and the Hot Cocoa dispenser, but I don’t have the right kind of beads. I only have Seed/Pony beads. Any suggestions for a substitute? Please let me know. Thanks! ~Olivia Wilson

  16. Olivia Wilson December 9, 2015 at 6:52 pm -

    I am almost done with mine! I just need to let the paint finish drying, glue it together, and, of course, add all the yummy Hot Cocoa and toppings to complete the scene!
