Flaming snowmen!

Flaming snowmen

What could be cuter than these little snowmen with flaming noses? To make these decorative lighted garlands, nothing could be easier! All you need is a few plastic candles available on the market.

Felt pens or a simple black marker, ribbons, pompoms, glue and a good dose of creativity. Your children will have a great time making and bringing to life their little snowmen. They will then be able to hang them up all over the house. Tuto in pictures on : onelittleproject
