Tea light snowman door hanging...

HUGE GIVEAWAY ALERT!
Okay, since it's Christmas, Emma decided to give away TWELVE of her FAVORITE things to ONE LUCKY person! She will announce one of the prizes for each day in her video! So by the 12th day, you will see ALL 12 items that ONE lucky person will be receiving! All you have to do is leave your comments each day! It's that simple! ALSO, **VERY IMPORTANT** Please leave your contact information so we can contact you "IF" YOU are the lucky winner! 

I'm telling you, the projects for this 12 day hop, have been amazing! I have gotten so many new ideas...these ladies are awesome! So, I have another tea light project for you...told you there were addicting! This is a much bigger snowman, in fact, I have it on my door. So then, let's get on with it.

Ahhhh, so cute, isn't she?! I think so anyway. So, cut yourself 3 circles...the face is about 2.5 inches, so that gives you an idea of how to size the rest. I used the hat from the Treasure Box Designs file and sized it to fit the 2.5 inch circle. I used Scor Tape to keep it in place on the plastic tea light. 

Such a cute face...I used my glazing gel ink pen to make her eyes shiny. Added some chalk to give her rosy cheeks, and some white gel pen stitching to finish it off. I stamped the holly leaves and cut by hand, and tied twine in a beautiful glass button from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique. I love those buttons! Tied ribbon around the tea light for the scarf. The branches come out of a file over at SVGCuts.
I love this stamp for Christmas time. It just seems to sum it all up. This is the new Stitched Curly Label Die that layers over the original Curly Label Die....LOVE THEM! I stamped the holly leaves and cut out by hand and added a red bead. Added some black buttons as well.

And here she is, hanging on my front door. I think she's cute. It's not overly big for the door, but it adds a bit of something and I try to always have something, anything hanging on the door. So...I hope I inspired you to play around with these battery operated tea lights. Let you imagination go...or do what I did. People will love it and want one of their own. Cute gift....just sayin'.
