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!
