When our kids were in preschool together, one of the moms used to bring the most adorable gifts to all the classmates. For Christmas she brought root beer reindeer and we almost died with the cuteness!
She used IBC root beer bottles , they make the perfect body for a reindeer. Perfect to give one root beer as a gift, or a pack to friends and neighbors. Who doesn't love root beer...well maybe some of you? We have also seen this done many times with other types of soda bottles.
Here's what you need and a little tip of how to make the antlers. Why you ask.... would you need a tutorial for pipe cleaner antlers? I thought I didn't need one and took them to boy scouts for a craft project. Well, the antlers ended up looking like this.....
Cute, but could be better. Nicole came and worked her cute magic on the antlers and I thought they were perfect.
You will need a bottle of IBC root beer, ribbon, two googly eyes, and any size of red pom-pom. We went with the BIG size with sparkles, and I kinda think he looks like Beaker from the Muppets!
We also used red pipe cleaners, the preschool mom used brown on hers. Whatever you prefer.
We used hot glue to attach everything.
Who wouldn't want this as a gift? :)
