    Hello little sister...Almost there! Few more days for Halloween time. Hope you're not scared, hahaha. It's getting cold also! 4 ° this morning and I'll have a lot of leaves to pick up today. We might have snow early this year, so we don't have any choice to make sure it will be warm in our house and keep warm'th in our heart.

    Have a nice day and week...and keep love in your heart.

    Love, Kisses and Hugs,

    Your little brother.

    DIY Fall Leaves Candles

     

    What you will need:

    Mod podge
    Sponge brushes
    Tea lights
    Clear jars of any size
    Raffia or ribbon
    Fake and/or real leaves

    Step one
    Make sure that your fake leaves are bendable and soft. If they are too stiff it will be very difficult to get them to stay on the jars. If there are large plastic stems on the back of the leaves, simply tear them off, it should not rip the fabric. If you are using real leaves, put some water on them so that they become more flexible and easy to work with. I decided to iron all the fake leaves I was using as it makes them flat and easier to stick to the jars.

    Step two
    Make sure your jars are clean by wiping them off with rubbing alcohol. If the jars are dirty, the leaves will not stick.

    Step three
    Using your sponge brush, spread a generous amount of mod podge onto an area of the jar. Allow the mod podge to get a little sticky, and then place your first leaf. Smooth out the leaf with your fingers, starting in the center and working your way to the edges. Do not worry if the leaf does not seem to be sticking, it may take some time.

    Step four
    Place another generous amount of mod podge over the leaf you just placed, and again, use your fingers to smooth the leaf. Do not worry about how much mod podge you are using, it will dry clear. You may need to do this a few times, but as the mod podge dries, the leaf should stick. Also, you may notice as you are placing the leaves that the edges are not adhering completely to the jar. Do not stress about getting the edges to stick down completely. Remember, leaves are all shaped differently naturally, and it actually makes it look more real once the jar is dry, and you will hardly notice them, I promise!

    Step five
    Continue to repeat step four until you have the jar covered, and your desired look. Overlap the leaves, but remember, the more you overlap them, the less the light from the candle itself will shine through. I did not worry about covering all the space between the leaves, so that more light would get out.

    Step six
    Once your jar is covered, get some mod podge on your sponge brush and lightly paint over the areas of the jar that are bare. This will create a textured look when it dries.

    Step seven
    Once your jar is complete let it dry for a few hours. You may want to use a finishing spray, but it is not necessary if you do not have any readily available. Next you will want to tie a bow around the top using the raffia or ribbon that you bought. Do not worry if the bow is not perfect, let it be a little messy as it gives it a more creative, unique look.

    Now all you have to do is put in your tea lights, and sit back and enjoy the wonderful autumn colors that these lights will provide. If you want, get some scented candles to create even more of a fall feel.

    While this project can take quite a bit of time, and can be frustrating, the results are beautiful! If you have never used mod podge before I suggest reading some tips on working with the substance before you start, as it can be a bit tricky. I Hope you enjoyed this fall DIY project, and stay tuned for more!
