Crafty Recycling - Twig Decorated Candle

It's my friend's wedding this Saturday, and one of the gifts I'm giving her is this candle which I've decorated:
I hot glued twigs from our garden all around the candle, then took 2 different colours of raffia and wound it around the candle.  The lower white raffia I didn't wind around, instead I cut a few strands of equal length and together tied them into a bow around the candle.  Here's the front:
I hot glued mini heart mirrors around the candle - a bigger one in front and 3 smaller ones around the sides and back.  Beneath the bow I glued a filigree leaf...because it looked kinda empty below the bow!
Here's a side view:
So, I hope she likes it. :)
