Making a Snowball Lantern

From a book called Snow Play by Birgitta Ralston

To make the base, place 9 same-sized snowballs in a circle on the ground. Make sure they are touching each other. Now put a tea candle on the ground inside the snowball circle. Stack up layers of snowballs, making each layer smaller so you have a rounded shape. Leave the top open. Carefully light the candle and then add one more snowball to the top to close the lantern. Stand back and ohhh and ahhh.
