How to Make a Reindeer Bottle Decoration

It’s hard to believe Christmas is almost here. Today I’m going to show you how to make the absolute easiest Reindeer Bottle Decoration!

I absolutely love Christmas time. I’m sure this stems from my parent’s love of the holiday. They would set the table and each night after Christmas, all the way through New Year would invite different friends over for a party! I remember some nights when they would entertain, laughing and eating delicious treats they had made until the wee hours of the morning!  They loved this!

I’ve joined up a great group of ladies for a three-day Blog Hop. there is so much holiday inspiration with these fabulous ladies.  If you are coming over from the amazing Karianne Wood from Thistlewood Farm Welcome.! Karianne is a dynamo and has the most wonderful blog!

Reindeer Bottle Decorating

Christmas is almost here, and with it, a wonderful excuse to go all-out on decorations! Making reindeer bottle decorations is fun and easy–the perfect project for getting in the holiday spirit. 

To get started, you’ll need some bottles, pipe cleaners in brown and red, googly eyes, decorative ribbon, and glue. First, cut three brown pipe cleaners into smaller pieces and attach them around the rim of the bottle to look like reindeer antlers! Finish off your decoration by using glue to attach two googly eyes on the neck of the bottle. You can even tie a scarf by using a  festive ribbon around the reindeer’s neck. 

Choose Any Bottle

What You’ll Need to Make Your Reindeer Bottle

  1. Pipe Cleaners (brown)
  2. 1 Bag -Red Pom Poms 
  3. 1 Bag – Google Eyes
  4. Root Beer Bottle/Orange Crush Bottle/Beer Bottles (however many you choose)
  5. Glue Gun

Once you decide which type of bottle you will use for your Reindeer Bottle it’s full steam ahead! (I’m pretty sure that’s what Santa told Rudolph when they were getting ready to fly off into the night delivering toys to all, or maybe that was Rudolph that said it? 🙂 )

This Reindeer Bottle Craft will work on any bottle, whether it be a wine bottle, orange crush, root beer, or a beer bottle.

Step one is to cut one pipe cleaner in half. (Set Aside) Then take one non-cut pipe cleaner and wrap it around the top of the bottle.

I used these wire cutters.

Once you have the longer-length pipe cleaner wrapped around the bottle, take the two cut pieces and create a V shape.

Wrap the V-shaped pipe cleaner around the end of the long pipe cleaner about three inches from the end of the pipe clearner, to form antlers. Do this on both sides of your ‘reindeer’!

The next step is to add the eyes. Dab a dot of glue from your glue gun where you would like to place the eyes. Carefully add the google eye on top of the glue dot. (some dots come already with an adhesive)

Repeat for the other eye. 

Next up is adding the red pom pom nose!
