I love crafts, and when I saw this on a magazine I was so excited to make it! Seriously, they're so cute! They're a perfect Christmas gift for friends and neighbors, or for your small group (that's what I used mine for =]) And you can fill them with whatever you want; hot cocoa mix, candy, puppy chow...get creative!
Black felt (I used felt pads)
Hot glue gun
Cut circles out of the black felt for eyes (or just use the felt pads like I did), and a triangle shape out of the orange felt for the nose. Glue them to the front of the jar.
Take the sock and cut it to form a tube (you should be able to get two tubes/hats per sock).
Tie one end of the tube with the string so that it looks like a hat.
Glue the hat on the lid of the jar using the hot glue gun.
Fill with candy or other treats!
