Easy DIY Hot Cocoa Bar - perfect for entertaining!

Adorable DIY Hot Chocolate Bar

One day (when I grow up), I’ll start drinking coffee. Until then, I’ll keep drinking hot chocolate. In fact, my entire family loves hot chocolate, so I created a little hot cocoa beverage station for us to enjoy! I partnered with Hobby Lobby on this hot cocoa bar and am sharing several easy DIY tutorials for creating your own beverage (coffee, tea or cocoa) bar. I began with these inexpensive glass jars that come in several sizes. Hobby Lobby currently has several coffee-themed areas set up throughout their stores, and I also found this mug holder that was perfect for my cocoa bar. Because I have a Midas complex and want everything I touch to be gold, I picked up a small bottle of gold spray paint. When spray painting, use a spray primer first (for food products like these glass jars, only paint the outside of the lids). After the primer is dry, paint several thin layers of the color. Since I’m obsessed with the cute little canvas banners I’m seeing everywhere, I decided to create one for my cocoa bar.

Here’s what you’ll need to create your own canvas banner:

  • Canvas (I bought a half yard from Hobby Lobby, and I’ll have enough to make as many canvas banner as my heart desires).
  • Decorative Trim (I bought a half yard of the trim from Hobby Lobby and used most of it).
  • Decorate Rope
  • Paint Marker (I went with black).
  • Perma-Stick Tape
  • Wooden Dowel Rod
  • Carbon Paper
  • Pen

To begin, cut the fabric just a little larger than your printout (mine was 8.5 x 11). Place the carbon paper on top of the cut fabric and the printout on top of the carbon paper. *Download the hot chocolate printable here: Hot-Chocolate-Free-Printable Using a pen, trace the lettering on the printout. Once the letters are outlined, use a paint marker to fill in the lettering. Using the tape, fold over the edges of the banner. Once the tape is in place, iron to set the tape permanently. Roll the fabric around the wooden dowel rod and secure with a glue gun. Complete the piece with decorative rope. I added a little fun with the canvas banner to our hot cocoa bar cart. The adorable felt-letter board is also a Hobby Lobby find. A pretty tablespoon allows people to measure their hot chocolate. These gorgeous mugs have the gold touches I love along with navy and white. They’re from Hobby Lobby and look gorgeous in my navy family room!

    Sara, such a cute idea. We’re hot chocolate lovers too. It will be months before it’s cold enough to think about hot chocolate, but I love your banner idea and anything painted gold is good.
