If you're hosting a holiday cookie exchange, your guests are going to need a way to bring home the delicious assortment of cookies they'll gather at your party.
Tools & Materials:
One-quart wide-mouth glass jars (available at craft and hardware stores; purchase one per child)
Adhesive-backed white felt
Small pine cones (available at craft stores; two per jar)
Brown pipe cleaners
Narrow red satin ribbon
Approximately 1/2" red linen ribbon
Standard hole punch
Craft tags (one per jar)
Letter stamps (optional)
Hot glue gun
White craft glue
Use the lid of one jar to trace circles on the white felt (one per jar you're making). Adhere a circle of white felt to the top of each lid. Cut a long strip of white felt for each jar to wrap around the edge of the lid.
Attach a layer of white pom-poms to each lid with hot glue.
Use hot glue to attach pairs of pine cones to make the shape of a deer's head and body. Twist together pipe cleaners and wedge them into the pine cones to create each deer's tail, antlers and legs.
Use your hole punch and white paper to create a pair of eyes for each deer and use craft glue to attach them to the deer's heads. Tie a small length of red ribbon around each deer's neck.
Use hot glue to wrap a decorative band of red linen ribbon around the edge of each jar lid, on top of the white felt. Glue a reindeer on the top of each lid.
Use stamps or pretty lettering to put the name of one of your guests on each tag. Attach one tag to each jar with twine.
