How I Made Fall Themed Tea Light Candle Holders

4 Materials
1 Week

Ah fall is in the air and that means leaves are falling and its time to decorate!

I had some faux fall leaves from a wreath that was falling apart so I decided to make tea light candle holders with two glass jars I had and some modpodge.

First start off by peeling the plastic part off the leave so its more malleable.

I then used a foam paint brush to paint each leaf with the modpodge and then placed it in the glass jar.

I tried to layer them a bit, it only took 3/4 leaves per jar since you want the light to shine through.

I'll be honest, I wasn't sure this was going to work out like I planned. It looked like a hot mess for several days, since the glue was on the inside to the jar it took a while to dry. But eventually it did and they look SO cute!

Here is the finished product in the light which looks nice but nothing too special.

The real magic happens when the lights come off and you have a beautiful fall themed light fixture. Obviously DON'T use real candles, these are batter operated. No need for fires!

    why did you need the Mod Podge? Why not just the leaves in the jar?
