    You always figure out some little adorable thing to make, you must have such a creative imagination. Want to loan me some of it? I always enjoy seeing what you’ve come up with. So cute, can use it all winter, even better. I love things that can be left out for while after holidays. You are so talented. I love all your creations. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

      Since it’s painted on the outside you will need to wrap it in tissue paper or cloth for storing. Otherwise, while in use (since it’s a candle shade) there shouldn’t be any worries that it will get scratched.

      “Lay the shade on a bath towel to prevent the shade from rolling. Dip a paintbrush in orange acrylic paint. Pointing it to one side, paint a 2-inch triangle with a 3/4-inch base between the cheeks for the carrot nose.”

    Love it! Bought some hurricane shades at Goodwill, gonna try it. I don’t understand about the powder blush, can you elaborate?

      The powder blush is the same thing (make-up) you would use on your face. You apply it to the snowman in the same way.

    People are funny… slipping the shade on your arm to paint, you would have to paint the outside… sometimes we don’t always pay attention to what we are reading, do we?

    Beautiful!! I have two questions: Do you think glass paint would work? And have you tried a larger candle, like a pillar? I have both of these on hand. (Also tea candles burn out so fast!) Thank you for the great idea!

      I’m glad you like it. I haven’t tried glass paint, but I don’t know why it wouldn’t work. You would just have to experiment. As for the candle…I think it would depend on the size shade you are using. Check out websites that sell the shades to read their recommendations on candle sizes for different shade sizes.
