Need A Quick, Thoughtful Gift?

Here is a simple gift that is easy to put together and makes a great housewarming gift, teacher gift etc. It adds a homey touch to a side table or dining table and has a "handmade with love" feel to it.

The apple/cinnamon candle was purchased at Michael's for $4.99. The small grapevine wreath was 99 cents at Joanne Fabrics. The candle cozy was made by appliqueing a heart cut from a scrap of fabric onto a piece of fabric that overlaps in the back, sandwiched and sewn to a piece of natural, cotton quilt batting. The cozy has a velcro strip to keep it in place in the back. I love it! ....and it just doesn't get much easier than that!

Here is another look if you prefer greenery to grapevine:
