If you are following my blog than you might have noticed that I have a serious obsession for autumn. So here I’m again with an autumn post, this time a little DIY project. I decided to get crafty and make some leaf candle holders. These candle holders are cheap, easy to make and absolutely appropriate for fall. This is how you make them:
- Some glass jars.
- A glue gun.
- Fake leaves (I bought some at a Dutch store called ‘Xenos’ for 1.70 euros).
- Clean some glass jars (if it has a label on, you can lay the jars in hot water with some dish soap for a while. This makes it easy to remove the labels).
- Put some glue around the edges of a fake leaf and stick it on the bottom half of the glass jar. I used glitter glue because if you can use glitter, you always should (the person who invented glitter glue sticks for glue guns is amazing)
- Cut the leaf around the edges of the jar .
- Repeat until the bottom half is covered.
- Put a tealight inside (or pine cones, acorns, candy corn etc.) and you’re done!
You can make these candle holders in about 5 minutes and they are so much fun to make.
Also my sister and I went to the woods today. We saw some deer and I they absolutely love them so I felt very lucky. I managed to take a (very blurry) picture of them and decided to share it with you (I think the left one was a baby, it was so cute I almost couldn’t handle it).
