Snowman Tealights - Makes a Cute Ornament, Magnet, Pin, or Package Topper!

I was busy making a small army of snowman tealights last week with a friend. She found this idea at a craft fair and decided they would be a great craft to sell as a fundraiser at the church’s annual Christmas Bazaar. They were super easy to make and I think they turned out pretty cute.

She made snowman faces by dipping the back of a paintbrush into black paint and dotting the tealights to create each snowman's eyes and mouth. An orange Sharpie helps make the snowman's nose look like a carrot even when the tealight is turned off.

We cut out paper hats and attached them to the tealights using glue dots. I made traditional black hats with a red band and cutout snowflake. She found a great deal on red and green scrapbook paper and used it to make hats that also featured a mini pom pom on top.

Magnets were added to the back of a few to help decorate a refrigerator or maybe a file cabinet at work and ribbons were added to the rest so they could be used as light up Christmas ornaments. You could even add a pin to the back and wear one or use one as a package topper for a special holiday gift.

I may make a few snowmen tealights with my kids so they can hand them out as small gifts to friends and family. If I do, I’ll share a picture of the results.
