Reindeer beer gift for guys

I can't remember where I first saw these (sorry) and I have seen versions of it done with root beer as well if you think they are cute but don't want to use beer.

You need a six pack of brown bottled beer or rootbeer (we chose some Irish beer because our friend we are giving them to likes Irish Beer and the bottles were brown).

You can whip these up in a few minutes. Along with the 6 pack you just need 10 brown pipecleaners, 6 red pom poms, 12 google eyes, glue and some string or ribbon.

First take one pipecleaner and bend it around the top of the bottle. Next you will use approximently 1/3 of another pipe cleaner and twist it around the main pipecleaner to make the antlers. Bend to shape them a bit so they aren't just straight.
Next glue on two google eyes and a red pom pom nose (I used a glue gun). Tie on a piece of ribbon or string to be a scarf and voila a sweet gift for the beer drinkers on your list!

FYI Yesterday Elfie returned...he got enough strength from our grow a candy cane elf help kit that Santa sent us and left to go back to the North Pole to get completely well. He returned yesterday and Sierra spotted him here

So far today they haven't found him...I guess Elfie is trying to be a bit more tricky ;)
