It’s my favorite time of the year!  I’ve got all my holiday decorations up. Early in the morning before the sun comes up, I like to grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the silence and the twinkling of the lights on the Christmas tree. Then the fun begins: I gather all my crafting supplies because I’m making DIY Reindeer Treat Bags.

Party Time

I’m in the midst of planning an annual Christmas party for 60 women!  I’ve got the menu finalized, a list of fun games to play (with great prizes) and my tablescape is coming together exactly how I envisioned it in my mind.  Oh, and I’ve got the music CDs ready for Christmas Karaoke.  It’s gonna be a blast and it all happens Friday!

Whenever I’m hosting a party, I make sure everyone has a treat bag to take home to remind them of the party and to thank them for coming.  Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with 60 treat bag ideas that fit within the budget.

Since my party will be all fun and games, I decided to make DIY Reindeer Treat Bags and fill them with goodies from Dollar General. To ensure I have everyone’s favorite gum, I purchased Extra® Spearmint, Peppermint, Polar Ice and Doublemint®.

Are you ready to make some DIY Reindeer Treat Bags?  Trust me, anyone can make these, even if you don’t have a crafting bone in your body.  Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Small brown paper bags
  • Wiggly Eyes (Or you can cut out eyes from cardstock)
  • Red Glitter Dots (Or cut small circles from red glitter scrapbook paper)
  • 3 Chenille Stems per treat bag

Using a hot glue gun, glue eyes and nose onto a brown paper bag.

Fill with Extra® gum and other goodies.

Fold the top of the bag down over the chenille stems and staple. Twist the ends of the chenille stems to resemble antlers.  It only takes a few minutes to make a herd of reindeer.
