how to make a tea light snowman

- Red Pipe Cleaner
- 2 small Red Pompoms
- Ribbon - 3/8" wide
- Cord for Hanging

- Glue Gun
snowman ornament instructions
With the 3/8" ribbon make a small bow. Then, set the bow aside. You will be using it later.
With a scissor, cut a 2 ½” piece from the red pipe cleaner. Set it aside.
Cut a piece of cording long enough for hanging the tea light snowman on the Christmas tree. Tie the two ends of the cord together with an overhand knot.
With the black marker, draw the two dots for eyes and several small black dots for the snowman's mouth on the tea light. The light will be the snowman's nose.
Now it is time to begin assembling the snowman ornament. Place the pipe cleaner around the top and along the sides of the tea candle and place a small mark at the end of the pipe cleaner on each side. These marks will be used when gluing the pipe cleaner in place.
Slip the hanging cord onto the pipe cleaner.
Put a dap of hot glue on the marks on the side of the tea light and attach the pipe cleaner around the snowman's head.
Hold the pipe cleaner in place until the glue is dry.
For the earmuffs, hot glue one small pompom on each end of the pipe cleaner.
The final step is to hot glue the ribbon bow to the bottom of the ornament.
The ornament is ready to hang on the Christmas tree. Just turn the light on, attach to the tree and enjoy the happy glow of the snowman ornament.
This quick project is perfect for craft shows or as a little gift for teachers, friends and workmates.
Do you need a craft activity for a scout, homeschooled or 4-H group of kids? These snowmen ornaments are a quick, easy and fun activity for families and groups.
