Tea light snowman

Tea light snowman

Instructions

  1. Use the black Sharpie to draw a simple face onto the tea light. You can use googly eyes if you want, but I preferred the look of the black dots.
  2. Cut a piece of red pipe cleaner to approximately 2.5? long.
  3. Curve it around the tea light and then add a small line of hot glue on both ends to hold it in place. Don’t glue it the entire way around because you’ll need to be able to slide the ribbon under the pipe cleaner later.
  4. Add a generous dab of hot glue where the ears would be and add the pom poms. Now your snowman has ear muffs!
  5. Cut out a piece of ribbon to be approximately 4.5? long. Then cross it over itself like in the picture below and add a small dab of hot glue to hold it together. I found this was the best way to make the ribbon look like a scarf.
  6. Add a small line of glue to the back of the “scarf”.
  7. And then glue it to the back of the tea light.
  8. Cut a piece of the thinner red ribbon to be approximately 11? long and then slide it under the pipe cleaner.
  9. Since a little variety is always fun, I also made a little snowman with a top hat. I cut a strip of black felt to be approximately 1-1/4? wide. The ribbon is just a scrap of gift wrapping ribbon.
