Fall Leaf Candle Jar
Glass jar (a Mason jar works great)
Acrylic Spray (optional)
Tea light candle
1. Brush jar all over with an ample coat of Mod Podge, avoiding the bottom and the top ridges (if using Mason jar).
2. Attach your leaves one by one, arranging and slightly overlapping as you go. Smooth down the edges and brush with additional Mod Podge as necessary to adhere them well. Let dry. Be sure to not cover your entire jar with leaves or you won’t have very much light shine through.
3. Once dry, brush with one more coat of Mod Podge and let jar dry fully. Note: Use a dabbing technique on glass where there are no leaves. This will look nicer than brush strokes once dry.
4. If desired you can also seal with a coat of acrylic spray after Mod Podge is dry.
5. Tie raffia bow around top and pop in a tea light. Your candle jar is ready for your Thanksgiving table!
* You may use pressed and dried fall leaves. Or if you are short on time and don’t have the two weeks necessary to properly dry your leaves, you can also use artificial silk ones. Just make sure your leaves don’t contain rigid veins and are pliable enough to adhere to the jar’s curves.
