It's actually SNOWING today! There may be a White Christmas in Denver after all...
I'm finishing up some last minute gifts and wanted to share with you today this fun and super easy craft. Naturally, I found it on Pinterest last year, but finally managed to to get around to doing it this year! I THINK (I've checked around the web) the original idea for these came from HERE. [If I am wrong, please correct me, so I can give proper credit!]
These really ADORABLE "Rein-Beers" are so quick and easy to make and will make anybody smile when you hand them over. I wanted to add my own little custom labels to them (of course!), so this is what I'm sharing with you today!
You get a label for both sides (or not) a to/from label and 6 smaller labels to put on the bottles (if you'd like). These are perfect for that Root Beer Lover or the beer drinker that is so hard to shop for! [Print the file HERE.]
~Brown Pipe Cleaners
~Googly Eyes (I used the adhesive ones!)
~Scissors or blade
~Kraft Paper (or other wrapping or decorative paper)
~Bright White Heavy Cardstock
~Decorative ribbon, twine, cording, etc.
~6 pack (or 4 pack) of your selected beverage
The entire project took me about 20-30 minutes to complete. (Includes cutting out the labels!)
Remove bottles. Take one pipe cleaner, find middle and place. Wrap around bottle cap several times to secure. Take another pipe cleaner, cut in half, cut those halves in half again. Taking these pieces, twist near top of the first pipe cleaner to make 'antlers.'
Glue on eyes and follow with noses. Make sure you determine your places first, so they are consistent and they aren't placed too low on the bottle.
Wrap the bottle holder according to your liking. I only did a strip folded on both ends with brown kraft paper. You may choose to do the entire thing or nothing at all!
Print and trim labels. Glue oval label on bottles, if preferred.
Glue your large label in place in the center. Attach your "For" label using a hole punch, ribbon, twine, etc. I punched through the box and attached the tag with some decorative cording.
Finally, admire your work. (Grin a little, just because it's cute!)
Spread the cheer!
