Root Beer Reindeer!

Reindeer Root Beer
When I saw these on Fingerprints on the Fridge, I knew I had to make them. I have been trying to come up with something clever to give to Cooper’s preschool teachers, and since there is a staff of nine who all work with each class, I knew it had to be something cute and on the cheap!
Total cost for this project:
$3.60 per six pack (on sale at Ralphs)
Packs of pipe cleaner, google eyes, and pom-poms (about 100 each): $10
Total cost was a little $40 for nine six-packs, or about $4.70 per six pack.
