This is my newest design called “Jacks and Cats”
This one is a smaller size measuring 12 1/2” across but it still has plenty of space in the center for a large candle, vase or bowl of candy.
Quite often I have emails from readers who either request or suggest different ideas for designs.
One request that has come up quite a few times is to make a “friendly” Halloween candle mat…one with friendly faces instead of those scary big tooth primitive pumpkins and cats.
You know the ones, don’t you?
Now these are really cute … (this is a picture taken from Google images) and I’ve nothing against the cute, scary faces, but as some have suggested to me, we need some normal looking faces!
The cat’s eyes are what I like most about this. The shiny white buttons make the eyes glow. I remember my husband used to have laying around here an old stuffed cat that he played with when he was little. It had button eyes and a friendly face just like this.
I need to look for that cat just to see how close this face comes to my memory of it.
I did my best to keep this candle mat simple and resisted the urge to add details.
