INSTRUCTIONS:

TO CREATE THE SNOWMAN CANDLE:

  1. Cut a strip of fabric for the scarf, cut slits into each end to create the fringe of the scarf.
  2. Tie the scarf around the candle and knot like a scarf.
  3. Draw the eyes and dots for the smile on in black.
  4. Add a highlight of white to the eyes. Draw a dot in each eye after the black paint dries.
  5. Draw the orange carrot nose on.
  6. Add some rosy cheeks to the sides of the smile with a pink or red paint pen.
  7. Glue the buttons on and enjoy!

TO CREATE THE REINDEER CANDLE:

  1. Glue the pom-pom nose to the center of the front of the candle.
  2. Go outside and grab some twigs.
  3. Create the antlers, group two to three small twigs together and wrap the cord around. Secure with hot glue. Repeat for the second antler.
  4. Glue an antler on each side and enjoy! PRO TIP: place the antlers so they angle outward from the candle, so they are far from the flame.
