Fall Leaves and Burlap DIY Candles

watch, jgardensupplies,

These festive autumn candles combine some of my very favorite craft supplies to work with: Mason jars, fall leaves, and burlap ribbon. I love the contrasting textures of the leaves and burlap, which adds interest to an otherwise very simple design. This easy project will add a rustic glamour to Thanksgiving entertaining or make a great gift.

Burlap reminds me of fall. I?m not quite sure why; perhaps because it?s the color of the garden going to bed for the winter. Or perhaps the texture that reminds me of the roughness of the leaves as they dry out. There are things I don?t like about led lawn lamps_2464 burlap such as the odor (what is that!?) and how much it sheds.

There are also qualities that make it quite endearing as well. The way the light looks through the loose weave. The versatility of burlap in crafts and decor. The natural look that can both act as a neutral background or feature.burlap wrapped mason jar fall candle craft

Elegant displays of ornately carved pumpkins are great, but I like to have a little fun with my pumpkins now and then!
