Bible verse describing some of the qualities of a virtuous
"She seeketh wool, and flax, and
worketh willingly with her hands."
Candle Jar Snowman
This Candle Jar Snowman is so fun and easy to make!
All you need is an empty candle jar and a few things
that you probably have around the house. Add a
little of your own style and creativity and you'll
have a darling little winter decoration for your
home or for a gift for a loved one.
Materials you will need:
Empty Candle Jar
Cotton Balls or Polyfil
Felt and/or Fabric
First of all, clean out your candle
jar. This is easiest to do by pouring some
boiling water into the jar to soften the remnants of
wax that are left when your candle has been all used
up. Make sure you remove the label thoroughly.
If the label leaves a sticky residue, you can remove
it easily by using some Ronsonol lighter fuel on a
cotton ball and rubbing it off.
Next, stuff your jar, and the lid
tightly with cotton balls or Polyfil. If you
like you can add glitter, sequins, or anything else
that suits you in with the stuffing. A cute
idea is to get a string of white miniature lights
(with white wire if possible) and stuff the jar with
the lights instead of cotton or Polyfil. Then
you can light up your snowman!
Now you can choose a fabric for a scarf
and tie it around the neck of the candle jar.
You can see that this one is made of felt with the
ends snipped to look like fringe. A small
safety pin keeps it secure and adds a cute little
Use your craft glue to glue buttons to
the front of the jar. You may want to make
them crooked a little bit to give your Candle Jar
Snowman a sort of whimsical look.
Make a hat for your snowman with
whatever you have on hand. This one is an
empty plastic Jell-O cup with felt glued to it, then
turned upside down and glued to the top of the
candle jar lid. Another piece of felt is tied
around the hat as a ribbon and embellished with a
Last of all, the face of your snowman
is a fun thing to create. The nose of this
snowman is the end of a stick from some Chinese
barbecue appetizers. It was cut to the length
desired and then a piece of orange cloth was wrapped
around it and glued so that it resembles a carrot.
Glue your snowman's nose in place. Then you
may choose some beads or buttons or sequins or
whatever you can find for eyes and glue them in
place. If you like, you can create a small
pipe and glue it in place or find something else
that is clever for your snowman's mouth.
