Flower Candle Coaster

Updated: Nov 16, 2020


I can't believe it's almost June! With all of this quarantining, it didn't feel like Spring at all and here we are, it's almost Summer! I absolutely love switching out decor to match the season and these sweet flower candle holders are perfect!


It's not that I necessarily think candles need coasters because my primary reason for making these was because I wanted to add some pizzazz (I googled it and that's how you spell it!) to my candle decor. However, when your candles start burning low, they do get a tad warm on your surfaces and this is the perfect remedy! Stylish and functional- my favorite combo!



This candle coaster fits any candle up to 4 inches in diameter. (Think Bath and Body Works 3 Wick candle size- pictured). I wanted it to be ombre as I had been seeing some ombre afghans recently that inspired me and I had a Herrschners gift card burning a hole in my pocket so I gave their Ombre Afghan yarn a try! It was perfect!


Hope you like it!


Happy Crocheting!
