Lighting the way <3
A cute project I found online during a blizzard.
Perfect for lining your sidewalk/driveway on snowy nights!

Its a little tedious to keep the snowballs from falling, but it looks beautiful!

  • Step 1

    Remember stancing cups back when you were younger? Three on the bottom, two on the spaces, and 1 on top? This is the same basic principle used here.

    Start making snowballs. A good amount is around 8-10 of them. Arrange the snowballs in a circle around a small votive or tea light cnadle. This is your first rung.

  • Step 2

    Make more snowballs, stacking them on top of where two snowballs join on the first rung.

    So if you had 8 on the bottom, you should have 7 on the next layer.

  • Step 3

    Continue doing this until the opening on top is still large enough to light your candle.

  • Step 4

    Light the votive using the long neck lighter.

    (If you don't know what these are, they are basically a safety precautioned form of a lighter. Typically used for lighting things in places where astandard lighter could burn you easily)

  • Step 5

    Continue making snowballs and fitting them over the previous ring of snowballs until the top hole is covered.

  • Step 6

    A snow latern!
