If you’re looking for a quick gift idea that won’t break the bank, get crafty! Dress up an ordinary bottle of Sue Bee® honey to create a festive holiday gift.
What you’ll need:
– 12 oz. Squeeze Bear of Sue Bee® honey
– Red felt
– White felt
– Black pipe cleaner
– Cotton balls
– Hot glue or other adhesive
For Santa’s suit, start by cutting a piece of red felt approximately 3″ x 6″ and apply it to the base of your bear using hot glue or other adhesive. Next, cut a piece of white felt approximately 1/2″ x 6″ and apply it around the waist of the honey bear. Add the vertical stripe by cutting another piece of white felt approximately 1/2″ x 2″ and applying it below the honey bear’s mouth so it meets the white felt around the waist. Finish off the suit by wrapping a black pipe cleaner around the waist of the honey bear for the belt.
For that hat, cut a piece of white felt approximately 1/2″ x 3″ and wrap it around the base of the lid. Cut a piece of red felt approximately 3″ x 3″ and apply it to the top of the lid. Pull and secure the top ends together to create a pointed effect. Apply a white cotton ball to the tip of the hat using hot glue or adhesive.
For the beard, glue white cotton balls to the face of the honey bear.
Ta-da! You’ve got yourself a Ho-Ho-Honey Bear to give to the honey-lover on your Christmas list.
