Christmas Countdown 5: DIY Reindeer Six-Pack

six-pack

I’m a bit wary of posting gifts that I’m going to be giving to people this year in case they see it on here before they get the chance to open them, so I’m sharing something else I made last year.  I got the inspiration for this cute little gift from Life of a Modern Mom where Kim dressed up six-packs of rootbeer and beer for her family.  I thought this was the cutest idea and just had to make them myself.

I made mine a little differently.  Instead of wrapping the pipe cleaner around the top of the bottle, I cut up the pipe cleaners and made antlers by glueing the pieces together with a hot glue gun.  I then glued the antlers to the bottle caps, so they wouldn’t get in the way while trying to drink from them.  I used smaller stick on eyes and sparkly pom poms for the noses.  I also used some extra wrapping paper to wrap the box in order to make it seem more festive.  I think these turned out really well, and I would be making them again this year if I didn’t think my dad would get bored of receiving the same gift two years in a row!
