12 Days of Christmas ideas with Six Sisters Stuff Giveaway

I have blogged many times about the Six Sisters' STUFF and how I think that I'm one of their long lost sisters. No joke they are one of my top favorite blogs for food and fun! I'm always inspired by their projects and recipes and the ones that they share from other bloggers.

I'm so excited to share with you their 3rd book, 12 Days of Christmas with Six Sisters' STUFF loaded full of 144 ideas for traditions, homemade gifts, recipes, and more! The book is 176 pages and full to the brim with sweet sister goodness! 


Root Beer Reindeer - This project is in the 12 Gifts for Neighbors. It is a super easy project that can be given to the neighbors or individual bottles to your kids' friends or teachers.

Materials
  • 9 brown pipe cleaners
  • Six pack of root beer
  • 12 (15 millimeter) goggly eyes
  • 6 (1/2 inch) red craft pom-poms
  • hot glue
  • gift tags

Directions
  • Cut 3 pipe cleaners in half, then those halves in half to make 12 quire length pieces; set aside.
  • Wrap 1 full length pipe cleaner around each bottle, just below the cap.
  • Twist the pipe cleaner in the back of the bottle and bring the ends up on each side to make antlers.
  • Twist 1 quarter length pipe cleaner around each main antler, about 1 inch from the top to make "branches" on the antlers.
  • Glue 2 google eyes on each bottle's neck, about 1 1/2 inches below the cap. 
  • Glue 1 pom pom beneath each set of eyes.
  • Attach a gift tag to the 6 pack that reads: "We're rooting for you to have a very Merry Christmas!"
