I wanted to share the candle mat I made for my mom and the salt dough bowl fillers I made for a centerpiece for the table. This is only my second time making salt dough creations, so please forgive the rustic look. I didn't seal them either, and I think a dipping in wax would make them look a bit nicer. I'm still playing around with the "antiquing" part of it, not sure how much I really like.
Here is the candle mat. Nothing fancy, just light tan pennies on an off-white backing. I couldn't decide on a color and I figured she could just swap out the candle for the season/holiday. This is my first 100% wool project and I loved working with the wool!

Well that's it. I'd really appreciate your comments.
