New Christmas Cactus Candle Mat Wool Kit
Looking for the perfect pre-holiday project? Our Christmas Cactus Candle Mat kit is the perfect gift for your favorite hostess or a fun, take-along stitching project. The Christmas Cactus Candle Mat is the perfect addition to holiday table decorations.
Inspiration for this project came as the nights in the north woods get longer and darker and Christmas cactus plants begin their incredibly bright blooming. Red-orange and hot pink, these beauties bloom for a month or better. What a lovely shot of color for the dreary evenings of winter.
Our kit includes the 6 pieces of wool shown above plus solid black felted wool for the backing and comes with the FREE Christmas Cactus Candle Mat pattern. You will have all the hand dyed wool you need to complete the 15.5" round top of the project. We also offer an optional color-coordinated Sulky 12 weight thread kit.
