Cozy House Curios is the home of the original crocheted toy censer! This unique item is hand-crocheted and both durable and child-friendly. Gold-colored yarn is crocheted around foam hemispheres to hold the shape. The “chains” are crocheted and have minimal stretch. They come together at the top to form a loop convenient for hanging. Twelve bells are stitched in place at regular intervals. The censer is constructed such that a one-inch space exists between the top and bottom halves. This allows the felted “charcoal” (made from black wool) to be inserted or removed.
While this item is well-made, as with any toy it will eventually show wear. Be watchful for bells that are becoming loose and either remove them or reinforce the stitching.
You can order this with the bells inside at no extra charge for small children who are likely to pull or chew them off. [4/2/23: currently unavailable due to unavailability of jingle bell inserts] You can also request it be made without bells if you desire. There are separate listings for censers with detachable bells, toddler-sized censers, and a pattern to make your own censer.
Original censer: 13-14 inches fully-extended, 3 1/2 inches across at widest point.
Censer with bells inside: 14 inches fully-extended, 3 1/2 inches across at widest point.
I offer a 15% discount on orders with a minimum of three censers for church bookstores or church school programs. Please contact me before ordering so I can make a custom listing for you.
