This little snowman is truly a quick and easy project to make. You’ll only need a few items to change a plain LED candle into a cute little Christmas Snowman. His hat is easy to make, too.
I love the soft glow that he gives off when turned on.
Cardboard Spool ~ I used an empty ribbon spool
I began by gluing two buttons for his eyes.
Next, I cut a small triangle from a piece of orange felt and glued it in place for his nose.
I had a set of vinyl letters with adhesive backs. I used the letter C and cut it down to make his mouth. Lots of things could be used for this. Small buttons, a paint pen or yarn would all work. I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the bottom of the candle for a scarf and held it in place with a dot of hot glue.
To make the hat, I used an empty ribbon spool. I’ve used tissue rolls to make other hats like the one I made for this Twine Snowman, but I needed something larger for this one. I pulled the spool apart and used the cardboard circle for the top of the hat. I traced a circle of black felt to fit the cardboard and glued it on. To make sure none of the cardboard was showing, I used a marker to color around the rim.
I wrapped felt around the cardboard spool and hot glued it in place, tucking it into the spool.
I glued the round disc to the tube to assemble the hat. Once done, I wrapped a piece of ribbon around it and added a snowflake.
It’s placed on top of the candle. I didn’t glue it down.
