Merry Christmas Rein "Beer"

Each December we get invited to a fun Christmas party with our baseball tailgating friends.  There's a Dirty Santa gift exchange, and of course food, fun and fellowship.  A lot of the folks in the group are single guys, so what do you take to a gift exchange that guys will like?  BEER.  Not being one to gift wrap a 12-pack, of course I had to "cute up" my gift a little.  I've seen this idea floating around Pinterest, and decided it would be the perfect thing to take for a group of guys.  Fortunately, our local liquor store sells individual bottles of beer, so I was able to choose six different kinds of holiday-themed beers (including Shiner Cheer & Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale.)  They all had cute Christmas and Winter themed flavors and labels.  I even found a six-pack carrier for Anchor Steam's Christmas beer, saving myself the effort of decorating the box (but feel free to do that too!)  All you'll need are some pipe cleaners, googly eyes, red pom pom noses and a glue gun.  Whip some up for the beer drinker on your list, they won't be disappointed if Santa leaves these Rein "Beers" under the tree!

Fun and Festive...
And thirst quenching too!

Merry Christmas Rein "Beer"You'll need:

beer
hot glue gun
brown pipe cleaners
red pom poms
googly eyes
scissors

Cut a couple of pipe cleaners into 2-3" pieces.  Take a full length pipe cleaner and twist around the top of the bottle near the lid, creating a "Y" shape.  Now take a few of your shorter pipe cleaner pieces and twist those onto the "Y" to make antlers.  Glue on your googly eyes and pom pom noses and you are all ready to go. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New "Beer"
