These are made from a wood upside down pear and a wooden candle cup. They have been glued together and painted. I have painted the tops of the candle cups to look like hats. The candle cup has a metal liner. The faces have been hand painted and strips of felt used for the scarves. You get one snowman and one snowlady for this low price. I have used them in centerpieces or stand alone pieces on a shelf or end table. Snowmen are always a welcome addition to any Christmas decoration.
