DIY: Reindeer Jar

The 10-year old is the maker of today's DIY. Not only do I think her idea is pretty fantastic, but it's perfect for that last-minute gift. Jar gifts are always a hit, in my opinion. Fill a jar with a cookie mix, a soup mix, a brownie mix. Or fill it with home-baked treats. (In my case, I've filled it with salted caramel popcorn. A new favorite recipe that is oh-so-crunchy & simply addictive. Click HERE for the pin.) And then embellish your jar with this adorable reindeer, which goes together in minutes. To say I am in love with this project is a supreme understatement. 

For this project you'll need:
• a jar
• 4 pipe cleaners
• 2 giant googly eyes
• a pom-pom (red or black)
• a marker
• a hot glue gun

Now, you can google "How to make reindeer antlers from pipe cleaners" if you want. But Pazely's antlers are the cutest in the all the land. It's your choice. 
Follow these steps to make your own reindeer jar...

Once your antlers are complete, affix it to the lid as follows:
