Milk Men

I’m about to show you something really cute.

Like super duper cute.

Like one of the cutest things I’ve seen in a while.

It’s so smart and simple – I just can’t stand it.

Snowman Milk Glasses. A perfect mix of winter and whimsey.

Like I said, cute, huh?

You may have seen them already, but in case you haven’t, I couldn’t resist showing you these fantastic ones that my friend Cupcake Julie made the other day.

They were inspired by some that Amy Atlas made on the Today Show after being inspired by Celebrations at Home who was inspired by these from Better Homes and Gardens. (Check them out.)

I can’t wait to make some, too.

I love things like this that have so much impact … and with minimal effort.

You just need:
small milk glasses (these from Target work great)
powdered doughnut holes
straws
milk, of course

To decorate, Julie used chocolate jimmies to press into the doughnuts for the eyes and mouth. The noses are orange coated sunflower seeds pressed into the dougnut and attached with a tiny bit of frosting.

She also coordinated their felt scarves with the same color striped straws. And to finish them off, she glued a few small buttons right on the glass.

Adorable!

I want to hug them.

And, then I want to chug them.

Hope you like them as much as I do.

P.S. Happy New Year!

Whaaat! These are SO adorable!! And they seem super easy too, as long as you have the right materials :) They’re the perfect winter decoration for after the holidays!

I have been trying these all day. You cannot attach anything with frosting as it will not stick because of the powdered sugar….and the jimmies don’t show up very well….any suggestions? I was thinking of making a cake ball instead, frosting always sticks to those. Give me your thoughts. Love your stuff, have a great day.

These are sooo cute. I can’t wait to make them for next year. I started a snowman collection this year (by accident of course). These will be perfect.

I saw these recently and thought,young or old…just about anyone would love these. But where do you find the little milk bottles? I really like the idea someone added about a baby shower with pacifiers…too cute!

I just made these for my son’s preschool class. They were a big hit! :)
I ended up using small Mott’s apple juice bottles for the kiddos.
They were the perfect size for little kids and safe in case anyone dropped theirs.

The Pom Wonderful bottle works great too!

Thank You sooooo much for this post. I fell in LOVE with these snowmen bottles, as I do with just about everything you post :), and went right to work making them. My 3 year old son was so excited when the family gathered for breakfast to see these. But the best, best, best part is that he DRANK the milk!!! He never ever drinks milk, not even chocolate milk. He went from formula to water and it is a constant battle. So again thank you so much, I am beyond thrilled :)

These are waaaaaay beyond words! Your work is impeccable – I love it. And your photos are so creative – you are an inspiration!

In Australia it’s a little hot for snowmen, so I created the Australian “Watermelon men” version. I hope you like!

What a great idea for a winter party. If you want to try a different straw for fun (keeping the white snowman theme) I just found “Got Milk? Cocoa ‘magic milk straws’. As you sip through the straw it makes it into chocolate milk with less sugar than chocolate syrup. You can find the straws through the website http://www.trendytoy.com I found them at my local grocer — Sudbury Farms. Can’t wait to make these!!

These are adorable!! I used individual glass vases that are the same shape but smaller and used a piece of fruit striped gum (I cut fringe on each end) for the scarf. Thanks for the inspiration!
