Frosty the Snowman

...was a jolly, happy soul with a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal.

Still needing a cute holiday gift for a friend or two?  Or maybe a little something to decorate your entryway table?   This sweet snowman light is fast and easy to make and you even get to enjoy a Starbucks bottled Frappacinno before hand!  My friend Alli from Chicken Scratch Creations showed me how to make these little guys.  Pop over to her blog here for a quick tutorial.  (Hey, and don't forget to let her know that you stopped by.  She'll be happy to see you!)


I also painted up a couple of plain small pickle jars that are super cute with a tea-light or a votive candle dropped in.  These would make fun little hostess gifts and would be easy to do with your little one's as well.

Happy painting!

Frosty the Snowman was a fairy tale they say.  He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life that day...

Very cute ... Have you seen the books "Snowmen at Night" - you might want to check one out to see what your snow-peeps are up to when the lights go out ;-)

This looks like a fun project. Maybe something I could do with the residents.

Love your snowman banner photo! Really sharp! About the jars and tea light candles -are those jars safe/okay to use with a candle in them? Just wondering how much caution you'd have to take to use them like that. But those jars you did up and super cute. Not surprised though cause my dear, all your crafts stuff is always "Super cute!"

How cute! All of them!!
I have a weakness for snowmen.
My collection is so big I don't have room to display them all.
