Use an old or new Hurricane Glass to make this really cool snowman. If you finish it with varnish you can actually use this to put a candle in or use it on a base light. A small push light would work also.
Use acrylic white and blot it on the inside of shade not making a solid thick cover. This allows the light to shine through with a unique snow appearance.
Paint a nose, mouth and eyes in acrylic paint on the outside. Cover with a varnish inside and out and you are ready to go. Add a decorative bow. What a great decoration that you can easily make yourself.
