Do you want to build a snowman? Sorry, I HAD to say it! Living in Florida I have to get creative in the ways I can build a snowman and I do love taking traditional supplies and giving them a unique spin to create a fun and easy craft. Make a Dollar Tree Snowman Votive that is the perfect addition to your holiday decorations. And, build a snowman with me!

Here’s how to create a Snowman with Dollar Tree supplies:
Gather all supplies. Paint plastic flame of votive with orange craft paint using a paintbrush. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
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.
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”.
Tie a five-inch length of ribbon with a knot in the center and glue to the bottom of the votive.
To finish, tie a ten-inch length of silver ribbon into a loop through the chenille stem, using the photo as a guide.
