My Mom loves to crochet and to keep busy so I asked her to knit me some cozies to use on my candles last Christmas.
She never uses a pattern and I did not give her any specific measurements…you see my Mom can not read or write but she can do amazing things with her hands
She made several sizes and as they were to long for some of my candles, I decided to fold them over. They look fantastic. If you are using these alone with a candle you must make sure the candle is the kind that only melts in the center, has a hard outer shell and never leave unattended. PLEASE DO NOT BURN CANDLES IN THESE COZIES! They are for decorative purposes only and best used with led candles or candles that you are not lighting.
I used my cozies to cover plain candles, to cover glass holders, and with led candles.
They look great plain but I love embellishing them…jewelry, pins, ornaments, possibilities are endless.
In the powder-room led candles worked really well…great to have the ones on timers.
I am so glad I asked my Mom to make these…they are so versatile, I can use them plain or embellish them.
I am also enjoying the red and white blankets my Mom made for my daughters beds. Perfect for Christmas.
Thanks for joining me,
