You know my LOVE for these cute bottles (Starbucks Frappuccino Bottles)…so you must have know I would have to come up with another Christmas gift using them. I wanted to make something that would be fun to give to the kids friends that were cute and pretty inexpensive.
I came up with a Santa’s Sweets and a Reindeer Nuggets version based loosely off of these Easter Bunny Gift Jars and the Monster Munchies that I shared earlier this year. I kind of enjoy the challenge of creating something new for each holiday.
I added a mixture of red Sixlets and red Gumballs in the Santa’s Sweets jar to represent Santa’s red nose. (I figure after riding in the sleigh on a wintry Christmas night his nose has got to be red). Then I included a little gift tag that reads:
“He “NOSE” if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake!”
You can also substitute the red noses to go in Rudolf’s jar to go along with Rudolph’s red nose. Whatever one you prefer will work with this I think, don’t you?
For the Reindeer Nuggets, I took some gold foil Rolo’s and added these festive Rolo Christmas stickers I made, based on my Valentine Kiss Stickers and Father’s Day Kiss Stickers that were also shared earlier this year.
To make them, you simply print the free download on white paper or white cardstock. Then take a 3/4 inch punch (found in scrapbook section of craft stores) and punch out the individual circles. Then simply glue them onto the bottom of the Rolos (or the candy kisses) with a glue stick. My kids always LOVE to help me with this job and I am happy to let them help!
Now that you have finished with the candy part…you can make Santa and Rudolph’s heads! I have provided you with a free downloadable pattern that you can use to make your own out of colored scrapbook paper.
Just look at these pictures to see how I put the faces together and what color of scrapbook paper to use for each pattern piece. You can choose to make Santa a different ethnicity too…just pick a different color of scrapbook paper. You will also need to cut a strip of paper that measures about an inch or so in width and is long enough to wrap around the bottle and be glued together. This is what you will glue the heads onto.
