how to make a diy snowman candle

  1. Using the black chunky Sharpie, draw circular dots for the eyes and then the mouth.  I used five dots for the smile, but you could use six. Just use your best judgment.
  2. Draw on a carrot nose pointing towards the side using the orange Sharpie. I made the nose slightly wavy to look like a real carrot.
  3. Take your hot glue and adhere three buttons of your choice down the front of the snowman candle.
  4. Cut a piece of ribbon to tie around the snowman’s neck as a scarf or a bow. Your choice!
