Snowman Votive Candle Holder
You'll need the following items:
Small, blue, glass votive holders
White craft paint for glass/ceramics
Assorted colors of permanent markers
tea lights

I found small blue votive holders  at Wal-Mart for
44 cents to use for this project.

Have each child dip one finger in white paint.  (The complete length of the finger)

Have each child make
3 full length finger prints on their votive cup.  (Make 3 to go with the poem below.)

When dry, let the children add eyes, nose, mouth and buttons using fine point sharpie permanent markers.

Place a tea light in each votive holder.

Wrap in newspaper and send these home in a decorative bag!

I made up this poem to go along with the gift.  I print it out, glue it on decorative paper, and use my mini snowflake punch for deocorations.  I fold the card in half and place it inside the votive holder so the parents are sure to see it. 



Little Snowmen 1, 2, 3
Made with my fingers for you from me.
The candle inside will burn so bright
To remind you that "I LOVE YOU!"
Day and Night.

Love,
