I had some leftover LED votive candles from a prior project. I saw this online and went to town using up what I had left in my stash. I painted on the face with a Sharpie marker, added highlights with white paint, cut a small strip of felt for the band and then glued on pompoms for the ear muffs and then glued on a ribbon to the back. Easy peasy!
