Project Instructions

  • 1
    Remove cap from glass block. Pour between 1-1/2 inches to 2 inches of snow into block. Mix in some extra-fine glitter.
  • 2
    Brush Snow Accents on pine cones; roll in glitter. Let dry.
  • 3
    Fill block halfway up with pine cones and small Red wood beads. Replace cap.
  • 4
    Paint three candle cups Splendid Gold. Let dry.
  • 5
    Cut two 1 inch squares of Green foam. Glue foam pieces together, then to bottom of candle cup. Repeat for second candle holder.
  • 6
    Cut eight pieces of 1 inch Green foam. Glue together, then glue to bottom of third candle cup.
  • 7
    Glue candle holders to top of block with thicker one in center.
  • 8
    Wrap sides and bottom with mesh/burlap ribbon. Glue in place.
  • 9
    Cut apart garland and glue pieces to top of block.
  • 10
    Weave four 8 inch lengths of burlap ribbon through garland.
  • 11
    Cut two 24 inch pieces of ribbon and tie into two bows. Glue to garland on each side of center candle holder; this is perfect for a centerpiece because there won’t be a front or back to it!
  • 12
    Cut and glue berries on garland. Glue pine cones on garland. Insert candles; 12 inch in center, 10 inch candles on the sides. Note that some of the bases of the candles may vary slightly in size; carefully shave off a little of the base to ensure that the candle fits snugly in the candle cup. Note: Use caution when keeping lighted candles in your home.
