Adorable Reindeer ‘Goodie’ Bags
It’s likely the holiday classroom party sign-up has made its way to an inbox near you. If you’re anything like me, you probably skimmed the list looking for the least labor-intensive option. Let’s face it…the phrase “hustle and bustle of the holiday season” has never rung truer. An endless holiday to-do list, along with ‘everyday life’, may have you contemplating how you can possibly squeeze one more thing on your already full plate. While I could’ve opted for a fan favorite…the juice boxes or the infamous paper goods and plastic cutlery, the designer voice inside kicked in. Before I knew it my name appeared next to the pinnacle party item…the goody bags!!
Offering beautiful home design services, when I don’t have my mom hat on, made it immediately clear this was not a task to be taken lightly. After exploring some retail options, it was clear, the DIY route would not only be more cost-effective BUT the perfect way to sleigh in the goody bag department. So the obvious next step was a trip to Pinterest…every mom’s best friend…for a little inspo.
The final result…these Adorable Reindeer ‘Goodie’ Bags!! Yes, I’m embarrassingly proud of how they turned out!! They’re the perfect blend of homemade with an ample dose of Christmas cuteness. The best part is they’re incredibly easy to put together and I was able to keep them extra affordable, thanks to some amazing Dollar Tree finds!
