Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reinbeer

poster-20106 Go down in history just like Santa’s famous red-nosed reindeer with this adorable 6-pack craft. All you need is a 6-pack of Northern Lights IPA (or your favorite Starr Hill beer), brown pipe cleaners, googly eyes, red pom-poms, and a hot glue gun. Oh, and a little holiday spirit.

  • Cut 12 approximately 3.5 inch pieces of pipe cleaner
  • Cut 12 approximately 2.5 inch pieces of pipe cleaner
  • Twist the shorter pipe cleaner piece around the longer piece about ⅔ of the way up to create a three pronged antler. Repeat 12 times.
  • Glue 2 antlers to the back of each bottle just below the cap.
  • Glue one red pom-pom and two eyes to the front of the bottle (pictured below) Pro Tip: Center ‘the face’ on the neck label star to keep each bottle consistent!

This craft is simple and fun to prep, as you’ll need to crack open a few Starr Hill beers in advance. To create your own ornaments, you’ll need bottle caps, ribbon, and a hot glue gun.

  • You can make these ornaments any size you like, but we used 5—6 bottle caps per wreath
  • Arrange bottle caps in a circle, then glue the edges where they touch
  • Let cool for 3 minutes
  • Tie ribbon of choice in a bow at the bottom
