Historically, candle mats protected the finish of fine furniture from candle wax drips. Did you know that in the 1700-1800’s most tables were finished with shellac? Wax bonds and melts into the finish making it almost impossible to remove a candle wax drip, hence the necessity of a candle mat. Many of the finishes used today are less susceptible to this problem. Today, our candle mats do the same thing while giving your home a distinctive accent under lamps, votives, or other items on tables and dressers.

(Candle and Stand are not included)
The Mini Penny mat kit makes four 5″ mats. They are great under a 12″ tall 3⁄8″ diameter beeswax taper or under a vase or just scattered on your table. It takes almost as long to sew one of the 5″ mats as it does our 83⁄4″ mats, so you should plan on this kit taking about 3–4× longer than a single mat kit.
Everything you need to start is right in the package including precision cut wool felt, floss, a needle and instructions. Made in USA of American Materials.
