A fun, multi use Christmas Snowman.

This little chap can be filled with sweeties or tiny gifts as an original Christmas present, or mini battery lights or tea lights can be put in the jar for a unique Christmas light and decoration.

PLEASE DO NOT USE A WAX, NAKED FLAME TYPE OF TEA LIGHT OR YOU WILL SET IT ON FIRE!!!!!!!

The pattern is clearly written with no complicated shaping or stitches.
There are step by step photo’s to help you along the way
