Rudolph, the Rootbeer Reindeer!

Check out these adorable gifts that we made up for our neighbors!

I can't take credit for the idea, though.  I got it from Jenn, The Purposeful Mom (thanks, Jenn!), who got the idea from Kim, Life of a Modern Mom

All you need is: Root beer bottles, brown chenille stems, wiggly eyes, and red pom-poms (I used 1/2 inch size pom-poms).

Trim off 2 inches from each stem and cut it in half.  You will be left with 1 long piece and 2 short pieces.  Wrap you long piece around the cap and add the short pieces to the tips to make the antlers.  Then, glue the eyes and nose on.  A hot glue gun may be easiest, but I seem to have misplaced mine!!!  So we just used craft glue and it worked well, just took longer to dry.

My Little Buddy came up the phrase: "Rudolph, the Root beer Reindeer", so we are hoping to sing that line to our neighbors when they answer the door!

  1. Such fun! They turned out super cute. I'm so glad somebody made them (perhaps I'll actually DO them next year instead of just pin them!) :) Merry Christmas!
