How To Make A DIY Snowman Candle:

First you will need a white candle.  I actually found this candle at Walmart.  I liked how the lid looked a little like a snowman’s hat.

Cut a long strip of fabric about 1 ½ inches in width.  This will be your snowman’s scarf.  We used a pretty plaid, but you can use any fabric color or print that you like!

Tie the fabric in a knot around the candle.  Trim to your personal preference.

Use a dab of hot glue to keep things in place.

Hot glue buttons down the front of your candle.

That’s it! Super easy and so adorable. A perfect gift for those last minute visitors or friends you don’t know as well…just don’t forget to make one for yourself!
