Here’s how to create a Snowman with Dollar Tree supplies:

The lightweight, low-profile BrightPad makes crafting easier while reducing eye strain.

STEP ONE

Gather all supplies.  Paint plastic flame of votive with orange craft paint using a paintbrush.  Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.

STEP TWO

To build the snowman’s face, attach two rhinestones for the eyes and five rhinestones for the mouth. TIP:  Substitute small wiggle eyes and draw a mouth on with a permanent marker if rhinestones are not available.

Select color combinations and patterns to create the snowman’s scarf with ribbon and earmuffs with pom poms and chenille stems.

STEP FOUR

Cut two-inch sections of silver tinsel chenille stem, bend into a “U” shape and glue to sides of votive with a glue gun and glue sticks.  Attach pom poms over the ends of the chenille stem and a section of ribbon under the snowman’s “chin”.
