These cute little fellas are easy to make. In fact, you could be making a whole family before you know it!
You will need:
- LED tea lights in white
- permanent markers in black and orange
- small length of ribbon
- small pompoms
- pipe cleaners
- glue – a hot glue gun will work best here. Don’t have a hot glue gun? Check out my Glue Guide for an alternative.
Draw some eyes and a mouth on your tea light. You could use googly eyes her if you’d like. It’s a personal preference.
Cut a length of pipe cleaner about 2.5″ long
Curve it around the tea light and then add a small dot of hot glue on both ends to hold it in place. Don’t glue it all the way round. You’ll need to slide a piece of ribbon under it later.
Add a generous dab of hot glue where the ears would be and add the pom poms. Now your snowman has ear muffs!
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. Add a small line of glue to the back of the “scarf”, and glue I to the back of the snowman
The scarf should naturally pop back to the position shown below without adding more glue.
Cut a piece of the thinner red ribbon to be approximately 11″ long and then slide it under the pipe cleaner.
Then tie a tiny knot in the ribbon to keep it together.
The tea light flame is white when it’s turned off so you’ll probably want to colour it orange with a marker to make it look like a carrot, even when the tea light is turned off.
That’s it. You’re done.
