If you’ve got a handful of tea lights leftover from illuminating jack-o’-lanterns at Halloween, this is the perfect holiday craft for reusing them.
These tiny tea light snowman ornaments from One Little Project are sure to spiff up your Christmas tree. They’d also make great gifts — hang one from a bottle of wine or attach one to a gift bag for a little extra holiday cheer.
Blogger Debbie Chapman shares step-by-step instructions for making these darling ornaments. We loved them so much that we decided to make them ourselves!
In order to make these adorable little crafts, you’ll need to make a trip to the craft store for red ribbon, red pipe cleaners, red pom-poms, a black permanent marker and an orange permanent marker. You’ll also need a glue gun for this project.
You’ll use the pipe cleaner and pom-poms to make little earmuffs and the ribbon to make a little scarf.
Most tea light flames are white, so Chapman advises coloring the piece of plastic with the orange marker.
She also has instructions for how to make one with a top hat, which is equally adorable. “You can buy most of the materials from the dollar store, so it’s a great inexpensive craft project,” Chapman writes. “Switch up the colors to add even more personality to your snowman family.”
