Tinsel Tuesdays: How to make a Snowman Candle Pedestal

Crafts 'n Coffee

Today’s Tinsel Tuesday tutorial (how’s that for alliteration?) is a special, DIY gift idea – a Snowman Candle Pedestal. In a clever “hat trick”, a 3” pedestal candle finishes off his top hat. Like Frosty, the top hat really brings him to life and adds personality. For even more personality, tie on a fleece scarf in bright colors or patterns, and then paint the Snowman Candle Pedestal to match. If it’s hot where you are right now, this is the time to build a Snowman Candle Pedestal!
