Candace’s Crafty Corner: Reinbeer!

I had grand visions of making lots of cutsie Christmas gifts, but buying a house and getting a second job put a damper on all of that enthusiasm. I did manage to muster up one crafty gift for Hubs and it was a hit!

Behold, a herd of reinbeer.

Aren’t they so cute?

Of course I snagged this idea from Pinterest. To take it further, you could buy bigger googly eyes and poms to dress up a wine bottle too!


  • Beer: $20
  • Googly eyes: 0.59
  • Small red pom poms: 1.00 (I still have some leftover)
  • Glue gun/glue: already owned
  • Brown pipe cleaners: already “owned”

Actually, JoAnn’s was totally out of brown pipe cleaners but luckily I was able to reuse a few black ones that my MIL bought for her adorable Jill-o-lantern when she came out to visit us in October.

Total: $21.59

Not too shabby, eh?

  1. Happy New Year, Colorado Folk. I love the idea for dressing up beer bottles although time constraints change your creative visions. Most often, it is a big deal: buying the gift and then putting it into a already decorated bag. ::)) It is interesting to note, that I am finally using up some tissue paper purchased before 2000. Wow. Have a great day. Lv mamap

    • Wow, consider me impressed MamaP! You usually brown bag it but I say pull out that pre-2k tissue paper and enjoy! I’m *still* using ribbon that YOU bought back in 1991…use what you got! Happy New Year!
