1In a well ventilated area, spray paint the fishbowl with glass frosted paint and allow to dry completely. Check the progress after it is dry, and give it another coat if necessary. For my project shown here, I gave each snowman two coats of frost paint.
2After the frost paint is dry, paint on the eyes and the smile using black glass paint.
3Condition approximately 0.5 ounces of the orange polymer clay by rolling it around in your hands until it is very soft and easy to work with. Then roll out a small cylinder. Push the end of a golf tee through the center of the cylinder as shown. This help support the carrot nose. Then, roll and shape the orange clay to form a cone shape. Bake the clay according to the manufacturer’s instructions (usually 250°F for 15 minutes). Allow to cool.
4Hot glue the carrot nose to the snowman.
5Cut a nine inch circle from the wire mesh. Be careful while cutting and working with the rough edges of the mesh. I recommend wearing gloves so you don’t scratch or cut yourself.
6Place a soup can in the center of the circle and fold up the craft mesh all around the can, forming it well with your hands. Then, make the brim of the hat by folding down the edge of the wire mesh all around the can. Remove the can and place the wire mesh hat on the snowman.
7Decorate the hat by wrapping a length of ribbon around the hat, and securing with the hot glue gun.
8Place a votive candle (preferably in its own votive candle cup holder) inside the snowman and illuminate. Enjoy your snowman candle holder!
