Finding the perfect gift can be difficult. Here is an idea (I’m actually going to gift this to my oldest brother for Christmas…shhhhh!!!), give ‘em their favorite six-pack or in my case a box of assorted beer. If you want to add the extra Christmas cheer to the gift, make your own beer labels or simply print out the ones I designed.
In my case, I was considering buying my brother a nice cooler to put all of the beer in. Then, I thought about it again. He is a no-fuss type of guy, so I decided just to wrap a sturdy box and fill it with beer. I mean, it will bring him lots of cheer.
If you want to make it extra fun, you can also turn your six-pack into reindeer (a.k.a. reinbeer). This little amount of effort will put a warm smile on your loved-one’s face.
When picking out the material for your labels for this project, I suggest going with the weatherproof ones (these are weatherproof gloss inkjet). The reason why I like weatherproof labels is because water and condensation won’t make the ink run.
- Bottled beer
- Bucket or large pot
- Brown or black pipe cleaners
- Googly eyes
- Mini pom pom
- Glue dots
- OL2936 3.5” x 2.99” Labels
- Free printables
Step 1: To remove the existing label off of the beer bottle, soak the bottles in a bucket, tub or pot of water. (I left mine in the water for about two hours and the labels easily peeled off.)
Step 2: Print out labels from your home printer.
Step 3: Once you remove the previous labels and dried the bottles completely, stick the new labels on the bottle.
TIP:Here is a trick to make sure your labels are even on every bottle. Place one bottle that is already labeled side-by-side with one that has yet to be labeled. This way you can stick the label on the new bottle and have the same spacing as the original.
Rein-beer Bottle Craft
Follow above steps 1-3.
Step 4: Cut three pieces of pipe cleaner. Two pieces should be 2” and the other should be 6-7.” Make antler shapes with the pipe cleaner by twisting a 2” piece to the ends of the larger pipe cleaner.
Step 5:Wrap the large pipe cleaner around the top of the bottle.
Step 6: Use mess-free glue dots to glue googly eyes and pom-pom nose to the bottle’s neck.
It’s that easy!
Happy Holidays everyone!
