How cute are these little beauties I came up with?! What I love about these Cozy Snowman Jars is they are so versatile. They can be used for drinks (they make a great hot cocoa jar), candles, or vases. Since I've made them, I've been moving them around my house switching them up as vases, then candles, then drinks! So fun. AND the best part is, they are so easy to make!
