Reindeer Cup Cozy

One thing that I can never go without at Christmastime is most definitely my hot cocoa. If you're like me, then you will definitely appreciate this Reindeer Cup Cozy. Not only will it keep your coffee, tea, or hot cocoa warm longer, but it will also protect your hands. The best part, though, is the adorable reindeer pattern that makes this crochet coffee cozy so festive and perfect for the holidays. It will make your kids smile and will show off your Christmas cheer all season long.

Have a hunter in the family? This would make an adorable (if slightly gross) gag gift for anytime, not just Christmas. I would change a few things though. I dont particularly like the cozy itself being the same color as the deer. How about using camo yarn or hunter orange instead? And Id probably make X over the eyes and add more points to the horn rack. Needs to be a trophy after all.

This is one of the cutest cup holders ever. I couldn't stop checking it out. It made me laugh, which means, of course , that I have to make it. It will make a great little gift for a friend that always says not to spend money on her. And with a little imagination, I can make different animals to suit different people. Thank you for sharing this great idea.
