Lay freezer paper down, shinny side up to work on. You could also use wax paper.
Melt candle wax or paraffin wax in a double boiler on med-high heat. Do not melt on high.
Cut wicks about 6 inches. If you are not using wicks that are already wax coated you need to dip them in your melted wax and let dry.
Fork more 'fluffed' wax around he base. Get it about half the size you want and let it harden a bit, while it is still warm you may need to reshape it. Add more 'fluffed' wax to make it the size you want.
I have 5 of snowballs for sale, unscented for $6 each, plus shipping.
This is similar to the snowball, just shaping it differently, adding small twigs for the arms, a strip of fabric for the scarf, and cloves for the eyes and mouth.
I buy the 10 pound slab of wax from Hobby Lobby when it is half off. For more projects go here:
Titus 2:3 says that we are to be "...teachers of good things...". We believe that part of these good things are practical skills that we all need in every day life to care for our family and neighbors. One of our primary responsibilities as parents is equip our children with the skills and tools to one day be productive, well rounded adults. Children need to be exposed to many different areas of work. Not only should they know how to work, but they should want to work. May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us- yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17
