This super easy candle mat is a great way to use up those fall colored felt scraps just add a pumpkin scented candle and it makes a great hostess gift this Thanksgiving.
You will need:
White felt 1/4 yard
Scraps of felt in fall colors
Brown embroidery thread
Cut 2- 12″ circles from the white felt. Feel free to adjust this to whatever size suits your needs or make it really easy and just trace a plate. Set one circle aside.
Begin cutting random blobs from scraps of fall colored felts. Place and pin at top, bottom and sides of one of your white felt circles. Try to make each “tree” a little different from the others. Fill in the rest of the space and pin when the placement looks right.
Using brown embroidery thread create tree trunks and branches with a quick running stitch along each tree.
Once all the branches and trunks have been stitched begin stitching down your trees with coordinating thread.
Once all the trees have been sewn into place, stack white felt circles together and trim any uneven edges before overcast stitching them together with white thread.
