Christmas Neighbor Gift: Dollar Tree Snowman Candle
They are easy and quick to make and are also very inexpensive.
This is an easy kid craft and the snowman candles make great gifts for neighbors with kids as well.
What is also so fun about this gift is that it has a double meaning.
As the candle burns, you watch Frosty the snowman melt.
My kids thought these were so cute!
You only need a few supplies to make them.

Directions for this Christmas Neighbor Gift: Dollar Tree Snowman Candle
Continue reading and/or watch the video on this page.
1- Wrap three pipe cleaners around the neck of a tall white candle that is 8″ tall and secure them so it looks like a scarf.
2- Using a black Sharpie draw two eyes and 7 dots for the mouth. See the video if you’d like more details.
3- Using an orange Sharpie marker draw the carrot nose.
4- Using clear construction adhesive, glue on the 3 buttons. Allow time for them to dry.
Note- In the video I explained that I used hot glue to attach the buttons and they, with the slightest touch popped off. My husband let me know that clear construction adhesive would solve this problem.
That’s it. I photographed these outside because it was snowing…
They turned out so darling.
I hope you get to make these as well.
