My First Candle Wrap!

I received a candle with a candle wrap from Susan at Keepsake Korner from our last swap at OFG and I just fell in love with it. She is an amazing artist and I have linked her name to her etsy shop. You should go check it out and see all the items she makes.
Well I decided to try making candle wraps and candle mats for Christmas present. Well this is my first attempt and although it has some kinks in it, I am very proud of myself.
Here in Tenn. you can't find wool felt and I am allergic to felt anyway so I thought I would try regular felt. It is not as heavy as wool felt but I think it will last for a long time if taken care of. And because I am color blind, you will see one yellow bead in there that I thought was white.LOL And I know that practice makes perfect so maybe mine will get better in time, I hope.LOLOLOL I made this wrap from a Penny Lane Primitives pattern.

But here's a pic. See what you think of my first attempt at candle wraps. When I get the matt finished, I will post a pic of it too. Thanks Susan for giving me the idea. Until next time...
