Take a trip to your local Goodwill and buy yourself a variety of glassware including a candlestick, votive holder, candy dishes (one with a lid), and a vase.
Add a generous amount of dish soap to your sink and fill it with water.
Carefully place all your thrifted glass dishes inside the sink, and remove the labels, dirt, debris, and anything else on the dishes.
Cover your work surface to protect it during this recycled glass art craft.
Glass Bowl Snowman
1. Create the Base
Begin by positioning a vase upside down. This will be the bottom layer of the homemade snowman.
2. Build the Body
Attach a candy bowl to the top of the upside-down vase.
Add a second identical candy bowl on top of the first one, creating the body of your DIY glass snowman.
3. Top it Off
Enhance the snowman's structure by placing a votive holder on the very top.
This will be your snowman's head.
Allow your glass bowl snowman to dry for a minimum of 24 hours.
4. Fashion the Snowman's Hat
Take a Dollar Tree sock and cut off one end.
Tie a rubber band to one side.
Now you have the perfect snowman's hat.
5. Scarf Styling
For the other end of the sock, cut along the sides to open it into a long strip.
Then cut one more long strip from that sock, creating a charming scarf.
6. Finishing Touches
Position the snowman's hat on top of the votive holder and add the scarf to the neck.
Simple Thrifted Glassware Candle Holder
Place a thrifted glass taper candle holder on your protected surface, and add some glue to the top.
Stick a candy dish on the top.
If you want to add a personal touch, embellish the front with ribbon and pine.
Insert a tea light into the candle holder.
Put the lid on.
