If you’re looking for a quick gift idea that that won’t break the bank, you’ve come to the right place! 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 honey 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 the 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 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 Bottle.
