Hello Saltee People!
Christmas is in 10 days…omg I just shuttered. I have so much to do and so many gifts to wrap. However, there’s always time for crafts involving a wine bottle am I right? I had such a fun girls night making these little guys! Let’s get into it! DIY Wine Bottle Reindeer.
What you need:
- wine bottles
- antlers (we found these cute pine cone sticks at joanns)
- googly eyes
- pom pom for the nose
- glass friendly acrylic paint ( we chose brown and gold)
- Twine + bells
- Any other decor for your reindeer – some of use used washi tape, some of us used twine + some of us used ribbon
Clean off your wine bottle and start painting – we did two colors for our reindeer, the top half was brown and the bottom half gold. Since I can’t paint a straight line for the life of me I used the paint to make an ombre affect. We waited like 30 minutes to let them dry before decorating.
Put on the eyes and nose!
Put on the antlers- I definitely could’ve used super glue to keep them in place but I don’t think it was necessary. I still have them loosely in there and I think when it’s time to package her away into storage It will be easier.
Give your reindeer a belt. Personally I used holiday themed washi tape! I think it turned out super cute. My friends also used ribbon and twine to make the belt.
Give your reindeer a bowtie. This we all used twine for. We wrapped the twine around the bottle a few times and we secured it with super glue. Then we tied a bow and then tied bells onto the end. I tied an additional piece of twine around as well to have an extra bow and curled ends as well.
Reindeer fashion show!
I hope you guys enjoyed this DIY + if you’re under 21 you don’t have to use wine! You can use any glass bottle you like. Martinelli’s is my second choice!
