Wet-Felted Wedding Votives- Part 2 of 2

Using a pair of sharp scissors...


                                          ...the felt 'sleeves' are neatly cut in half...



                                ...and because they were fulled to a particular size...



                                       ...each fits snugly on its own wooden base.











                                                    On the day of the wedding...          
                    
                            ...candles will be placed into each of the wooden wells.



                                                      I started with just a few...
                                   



                                                ...but over three days' time...                                               





                                                      ...my collection grew...







...until there were enough to have several on each table.











                                              I even made a few spotted ones! :)







                                           (Most) of the finished wedding votives.



                                    A special thank-you to my 'soul sister', Fiona...

                        ...for gifting me with these wonderful wooden candle bases.

        (We'll be sure to drink a toast of thanks to you and Graham at the wedding!)

They're lovely, and will look charming with the flickering candlelight inside.

Very nice indeed! They will provide your guests with a lovely conversation piece, as well as soft light at each table. How unique is that? Good job! :)
