If you’ve been following me for any amount of time at all, then you’ll know that I love, Love, LOVE Cheap & Easy.
So when I ask if you’ve “got a minute”… I really mean a minute.
Do you want to build a snowman?
(are ya singing that in your head now ala’ Frozen?)
You’re so welcome.
This is what you’ll need:
- A Dollar Tree white pillar candle in glass. (or comparable candle)
- A sharpie. (we’ve all got these, so I didn’t add it to the cost – I used black, you can use colors if you like!)
- Teeny tiny scrap of fabric. (again, so minimal, I didn’t factor it in)
- Optional: any other bits or bobs to make scarves or add more personality. I like simple, so mine got a scarf and called himself Lucky!
Before I begin, I want to disclose that I was perusing Pinterest one evening, and happened upon some real cute candles, turned into snowmen. So I didn’t come up with this idea on my own, but I was inspired! I saw the originals here and they are by Desiree from The 36th Avenue. They are darling. As is everything she does, and I’m sure you’ll love them as well!!
I of course cheated, and made mine as easy as possible.
Big shocker right?
I drew entire face and buttons on with a sharpie. First try, not perfect. Works for me!
Next I wrapped a scarf around his lil’ neck and called him Done.. or Lucky.
He ignores me no mater what I call him.
Just wait until I light him… hahahahaha.
… that’ll teach him.
If your scarf won’t stay put, use a dab of glue or a pinch of double sided tape.
With my ever present candy canes and peppermints, he adds a festive feel that is perfect for the holiday season!
These would be so cute dressed as a snowman family with different colored scarves.
… or clustered together, maybe on a mantel or shelf?
Whatever you decide, have fun with them!!
Wishing you a wonderful and joyous Christmastime.
