I have a post up on the Love My Tapes blog today for this fun little Christmas project. This idea has been around for awhile and I've seen many versions of the poem, but this one is my favorite!

I started with a sandwich size bag, filled it with uncooked oats, then added in gold and red colored cake sprinkles.

Next I cut a circle from the front part of a brown paper sack, then added the bag of food. I folded the top of the sack over, and stapled so it would stay together, and hold the bag of reindeer food, then added a strip of washi tape to cover the staples. I typed the cute poem on a tag and of course the reindeer needed a red rhinestone nose! I can't wait until Christmas eve to see this sprinkled all over our yard ;)

Here is the poem in case you want to make your own Reindeer Food!

Be sure to take this MAGIC FOOD
and sprinkle on the lawn,
on Christmas, Santa's Reindeer
travel miles before the dawn.
The smell of oats
and glitter path
will guide them on their way
and you'll wake up
to Santa's gifts next morn
on Christmas Day!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
