Make Your Own Autumn Candle Holder

This Autumnal candle holder is simple and fun to make

Autumn is a favourite time of year for many due to the change in the colours of the leaves, having a reason to wear chunky jumpers and Christmas edging ever closer. It also means that there are sadly going to be a few more weekends than usual which will need to be spent indoors due to horrible weather. 

A fun & easy tutorial 

Shanti from Twig & Toadstool even admits that her creation pictured above was a bit of an experiment. Thankfully it turned out great, as well as being super easy and cheap to produce. Consisting of just a glass bowl, leaves from the garden and PVA glue (or Mod Podge if you're in the US). The long, red leaves used here are from a nearby Sumac tree, which give a brighter and more attractive effect than the usual browny green on autumnal leaves.

We'll leave the detailed explanation in Twig & Toadstool's capable hands, but the process involves pressing the leaves for at least 36 hours, placing them on a glass bowl covered in PVA glue then covering them in another layer of glue. The result has become a feature in their home next to their other autumnal themed curios such as gnomes, acorns and pumpkins. It would make a great table-setting for a Sunday roast too.

P.S Don't forget to stock up on pillar flameless candles before setting out on crafting this Autumn!
