As I was thumbing through some holiday magazines, I spotted a FUN idea that I knew would make great hostess gifts this Christmas season - making reindeer from a six-pack of bottles. I didn't recognize the drinks that were used in the small sample photo, but I knew immediately I could use this idea with Coca-Cola.
Simply adding pipe cleaner antlers, googly eyes, pom-pom noses, and twine scarves turned this six-pack of Coca-Cola into a great gift for my sister, who made cinnamon rolls, yummy chocolate/pumpkin muffins, and a delicious pulled chicken sandwich dinner for me during my recent visit. I added a handmade gift tag that included a FUN foam reindeer sticker.
I used the same idea as a hostess gift for Ellyn, who drinks Diet Coke and hosts Crafty Tuesday at her home each month.
I had a Coca-Cola trading card in my stash that I used for the handmade tag.
This month's meeting included a gift exchange, a yummy meal, and chocolate (of course!). Thanks Ellyn for hosting us each month!
