Good morning and Merry Christmas to you and your family! We're blessed with a white Christmas here in Maine so today's project can be used during the cold wintery months ahead to add a warm glow to your home.
These Snowflake Candle Mats are so easy, you'll be whipping them out by the dozen!
Here's a snapshot of the products I used:
I cut several large snowflakes using Elizabeth Craft Designs Ornate Snowflakes and Dotted Scallop Circles out of the Stardream Metallic Silver Cardstock
and glued the snowflakes onto the scalloped circles using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I added some pretty colored gems to the snowflakes and lifted the fractals of the snowflakes to add depth.
The battery operated tea lights fit perfectly in the center of the candle mats.
These particular candles change color and I just happened to get lucky enough to have them all at different colors when I snapped the picture.

Birgit, these are such a great idea and love the gems you've added to them. I heard you were getting snow up there; I just hope it was manageable and people can still get around. Down here we get plowed in for days and no one can even get to work.ReplyDelete
This is a beautiful way to display candles on one's holiday table and throughout the home. Real candles are so pretty but I think in my case I would have to use artificial ones as we have lots of little ones who might burn themselves if they got too curious. This is an awesome gift idea too.ReplyDelete
These are SOOOO pretty Birgit...love them!! I need to remember this idea for next year for gifts for my bible study ladies...I think they would really like them! Where did you get the color changing tea lights from??ReplyDelete
These are so pretty, great out of that cardstock and love the added gems, I haven't seen the small tea lights change like that, so pretty in all the different colors!ReplyDelete
Hope you had a lovely Christmas!
