When I saw some ideas like this bouncing around Pinterest I just had to give it a try. I’m pretty sure they are the cutest Christmas Ornaments I’ve ever seen! They cost about $3 to make too!
You will need:
*A battery operated tea light candle (you can get these at most $2 stores – $1.99 for a pack of 2)
Sharpie pens – black & pink/red
The first step is to make his cute lil hat!
Start by tracing around the tea light to get the right shaped circle
Cut a 3cm x 6cm (approx) rectangle shape
Cut the two shapes out
Shape the rectangle shape into a cylinder shape & glue along the seam
Trace the bottom of the cylinder to create another circle & cut it out
Glue the small circle atop the cylinder & glue that to the larger circle and voila, you have your very own DIY Snowman hat! EASY!
Cute right! You will notice that I also added a small amount of ribbon to ‘trim’ the hat. Just use a small amount of glue to hold this down : )
Next we move on to the ribbon on the tea light candle : )
Cut a length of the ribbon that will be long enough (based on the size of the bow you would like). Glue the top and the sides of the ribbon to the candle.
Tie the ribbon in a bow
Cut another length of ribbon and fold it over to work out the size of the ‘hanger’ you require, then glue gun this to the back of the tea light.
Then simply draw on his face with the sharpies. I dotted on some pink cheeks & smudged them a little, then drew on the eyes & mouth.
Now flick the switch and behold the oohs & aahs ; )
*please note some LED Candles contain lithium batteries which can be very harmful to children if swallowed, please ensure you use the glue gun to secure the opening.
