Friends suggested I post this here, so here goes. I found 3 of these tea lights at a local thrift store for $2, each one a different snowman but missing the glass shades. I took a panel of a FSL doily I had and removed the design, then I had a design of a row of snowflakes but the bow was at the bottom of the string just on top of the snowflake. So, I removed one snowflake and moved the bow to the top of the string and added it to the panel. Made 3 panels and hand sewed them together. Now they have shades. Am using battery operated tea lights in them. Thanks for looking!
