Greetings and welcome to the Crafts section of our Christianity Oasis Christian community. This Candle Jar project with a Snowman jar pattern and tutorial website was inspired by Proverbs 31:13, which is a Bible verse describing some of the qualities of a Virtuous Woman.
"She seeketh wool, and flax, and
worketh willingly with her hands."
Candle Jar Snowman
This Snowman Jar 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 snowman jar decoration for your
home or for a gift for a loved one.
Materials you will need create your own snowman jar:
Candle Jar - Cotton Balls or Polyfil - Buttons - Scissors - Felt and/or Fabric - Craft Glue
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 candle jar label thoroughly.
If the label leaves a sticky residue, you can remove
it easily by using some Ronsonol lighter fuel on a
cotton ball to rub it off.
Next, stuff your candle 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 candle 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. 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
touch. Use your craft glue to glue buttons to
the front of the jar. You may want to make
the buttons a little crooked to give your Candle Jar
Snowman a more whimsical look. It is up to you as far as the specific details.
Make a hat for your candle jar 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
button. You could also trim a piece of a toilet tissue roll to the height you wish the hat to be and cut out a circle of cardboard from a cereal box for example for the brim. Glue the two together and cover with felt or other fabric.
Last of all, the face of your candle jar 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.

Lord, grant me that I may see to stitch until my dying day. And when my last short thread is clipped and scissors tucked away – The work that I have done live on, that other folks may see – The pleasure that I have known, Lord, in the skill you gave to me.
While stitching threads with gentle care, I pray this humble little prayer, that with this work the world may see, the beauty in simplicity.
A stitch in time saves nine.
