DIY: Fall Leaf Candle Jars

Fall is a favorite around our house so we are always looking for fun crafty things to do. I really love candles (real or battery powered) and I have a surplus of baby food jars from all of my kids, so we try to use them for crafts when we can. I really wanted to make some pretty fall leave candle jars.

These are pretty easy to make, and took less than 5 minutes. Just take a package of fake fall leaves (you can grab one at the dollar store), get your glue gun, some ribbon, yarn, or twine, and whatever embellishments you want to use (I chose a tag and a paper flower).

I decided to paint a thin layer of black paint on the jar first just to give it a more rustic looking effect. You can do this or not, it doesn’t really matter.

Next you will take the baby food jar (or whatever size you wish to use) and hot glue the leaves on randomly until you are happy with how it looks. You can glue down errant corners if you need too. (be careful not to burn your fingers on the glue through the leaves).

Once the leaves are on, you will take and put ribbon, twine, or yarn around the next of the jar, adding embellishments if you choose too.

That’s it! Super easy right? and so cute. I love these. You can even make them in a few different sizes and lay them out on a table, counter, piano or wherever with extra fall leaves sprinkled around them. Add some mini pumpkins for the perfect look!

These are also a great way to decorate your shelves! Just add a battery powered candle and you are good to go!
