We have been having some of the hottest weather of the summer, these past few weeks! The heat is only making me long for Fall even more. I haven’t let myself take out all the Fall decor, but I have started to add a few touches.
I made this Fall candle craft for less than $5!
What I used: two glass jars for each holder (one slightly larger), leaves from the yard, gold paint, and paint brush.
1. I dried the leaves in a large book, between wax paper.
The metallic paint was about $3 from the craft store (with a coupon).
2. I brushed each leaf with a light coat of gold paint.
3. Then I put a second coat on each leaf and pressed the painted side to the inside of the larger glass jar.
**I got all four glass containers at Goodwill for about $.50 each. Look in the vase section and with the glasses for different sizes that fit together.**
I just used the paint to help the leaves stick to the glass. Some of the leaves have peeled away from the glass a little, but that’s OK with me. It just looks more organic! 😉
4. I placed the smaller glass container inside for the candle. This keeps the leaves safe from the flame!
A quick and easy craft to add some Fall to my house…even when it’s 90 degrees outside! 😉
Don’t mind all the smudges! You really don’t notice them in person!! 🙂
Is it too early to start decorating?!? Have you started, yet?
