Rudolph Beer Anyone?

Hello There

Just when you thought that Christmas was long behind us or in front of us in the dim and distant future, I pop up with a Christmas craft make which I forgot to share with you before....

Yep!  Rudolph Beer!  We (as in the "Royal We" which means I) bought various male members of the family beer for Christmas, easy pleaser, and I was left with the task of wrapping said pressies (as usual) and came across some sparkly pipe cleaners in the wrapping bag (Lord knows how long or why they have been there so VVOS).  Well a little bit of routing round my Pinterest Christmas board where I had seen something similar, a glass of Baileys and I set to making my own.  No red noses as no-one had 9 bottles! (besides the fact that I did not have any red noses to hand at stupid-o'clock-in-the-morning whilst I was wrapping pressies!)

My Dad laughed when he saw them and then told me  on the phone later that they got "wonked" in the fridge!!  Too funny!

Well, that was what it is all about this crafting malarky innit?  Having fun!

Thanks for calling by.

Too funny...they look great!

Thanks for the tip about the glue...I will try that. Teensy bits are always a challenge!

Have been having computer troubles again...back into the shop yesterday and needs to go back today it would not shut down last night and the motor ran noisily for so long. Finally I unplugged it!

Hope you are keeping safe and well with all this nasty weather.

Fab idea, think I might need to borrow this for next year. Not sure why I always run out of time to get everything done it's not like they change the date every year lol. Hugs, Amanda x

Very festive beer! Hubby got several Christmas themed beers this year. One was Bad Elf and another was Santa's Butt. I'm hoping it tasted better than it sounds.
