Star Candle Trivet – Free Crochet Pattern
With this easy crochet pattern you can create this beautiful star candle trivet quickly!
I live in New England not far from Yankee Candle. I love the smells that they can portray so truly from wax! Like seriously….. And what better way to display that candle than to make a star candle trivet to display it on.
I took the Ara Blanket Square and made some modifications to make it a beautiful, stand alone star trivet. It will be a beautiful addition to your favorite candle. Make one or make it in more than one color. A candle and trivet combo would also makes a great gift.
