Cute a small hole on each side, near the top. Insert a chenille stick as a handle. I love how this gold one really jumps out. Glue on a red pompom around the holes.

Now in the back, cut out a square so that you can add in a candle. I used the battery operated tea light-like candles.

    • That is what I use. I never use real candles because of the kids and the cats. I get my led light tea light candles at the dollar store.

  3. Great craft, and very easy to do! At first i thought it was Burt from Burt and Ernie.

  4. This is such a cute twist! I’ve seen the milk jugs done up as ghosts for Halloween and thought those were cute, but snowmen is even better! Thanks for sharing!

  22. That’s a great idea! I would make one and use it when we get typhoons and the power goes out. That would surely keep the kids from playing with the candles. It would also save me the effort to scraping the candle wax after the power comes back on. Thank you for sharing! Love it!
