Once again the seasonal napkins were my first thought for a snowman favor, then I found an array of cute Christmas themed tissue paper.
I don't see why you couldn't use leftover Christmas wrap as well.
List of supplies: glue gun/sticks
tissue paper or gift wrap or napkins
Styrofoam balls polyfill
party nut cups
candy for filling
Prep snowman with one generous coat of white paint.
*A toothpick enables you to hold and paint the entire ball.
Drill a hole into the base of the styrofoam ball with a pair of (closed) pointed scissor. This openingwill help prevent the (wrapped) candy cane from breaking when it's inserted.
*A piece of double stick tape wrapped around the cane helps secure it inside the head.
Cut a 9inch circle from the paper.
Lay filled candy cup in the center, gather and tie the hat with a bow.
Glue head and hat together.
Until the polyfill is attached the hat will seem large . Take a strip of polyfill, wrap and glue around the base of the hat.
Paint his face.
*I used a dotting tool with the puff paint, a toothpick works too. With a Q-tip add a smidge of blush to his cheeks. Yup actual blush from your makeup bag.
Tie wired ribbon around the candy cane to create the effect of a wind blown scarf.
Rudolph The Red Nose Lollipop
These little Rudolph's were made with.... mini candy canes for the antlers, peppermint candies for the face/head, red hot candies for the nose and a toothpick dot of melted chocolate for the eyes. Candy melts were used to glue everything together including the lolli stick.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!! See you in the New Year!
