DIY Christmas Gifts – Idea #2

Reindeer Wine Bottle
My next DIY Christmas Gifts inspiration came from these Reindeer Rootbeers I found on Pinterest.

Paint a nice bottle of wine or sparkling cider for a non-alcoholic version and decorate it to look like a reindeer. Then attach one of these free printable tags to the bottle and you have a cute Christmas gift to give. There are two tag designs to choose from. The tag reads: “I don’t know if there’ll be snow, but have a cup of cheer…from this bottle of “wine-deer” or “ci-deer” depending on which version you choose.

Reindeer Bottle – Idea #2

What you’ll need:
Favorite bottle of wine or sparkling cider
Rubbing Alcohol (to clean the outside of the bottle)
Paint (craft or spray paint)
Pipe Cleaners (I used the pipe cleaners that have the “bumps”)
Pom Poms
Googly Eyes
Ribbon
Glue or Tape
Step 1- Clean the outside of the bottle with some rubbing alcohol and allow to dry.
Step 2- Paint the bottle using craft or spray paint. I used Anita’s Glossy Craft Paint in Chocolate and it worked well and dried pretty quick. I did 2 coats.
Step 3- Twist a pipe cleaner around the top of the bottle for each side of the antlers.
Step 4- Cut pipe cleaners in half to make the shorter antler pieces and attach.
Step 5- Glue or tape on the googly eyes.
Step 6- Glue or tape on the pom pom nose.
Step 7- Tie a ribbon around the neck of the bottle and attach the printable gift tag.
