Happy Friday! The weather in my neck of the woods has been unseasonably warm, it’s been unbelievable. A trip to the park left us all wore out but happy to be soaked in warm sunshine. It’s hard to believe that the Holidays are just around the corner. I am holding off to get my tree out until after Thanskgiving, but these little pops of holiday cheer make me so happy! These adorable crochet candle cozies are a cute and quick way to bring some holiday color to your decor.

  1. Just found this pattern, how beautiful! I solves the burning candle dilemma by going up one hook size and wrapping the candle cozies around a clear glass candle holder instead of the candle itself and much less dangerous as a gift.

  2. These are so cute! They would make such a great gift. My goal is to learn to crochet in 2017. Thanks for linking up to The Creative Exchange. We are featuring your project this week. Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. They are really beautiful. But I miss a warning on your page not to lite the candle with the cozy on. It may be a logic thing for most people, but there are always people who do not think about it and you do not want to be the cause of a house fire. So beautiful but dangerous when candle burns!
