D.I.Y Autumn Candles

Here is a special guest DIY post from my lovely mum! These autumn  leaf candles are very easy to make and they look so pretty at night! 

1. You will need: a collection of different sized mason jars, tissue paper, PVA glue and some dried leaves.
2. Brush the leaves on to the jar with PVA glue, making sure that they are well covered. 
3. While the glue is still tacky, cover the jar in tissue paper and brush more PVA glue over the top of it to seal it. Leave to dry completely overnight. 
4. Pop a tea-light candle inside and enjoy your pretty new autumn lantern! 

Thanks for sharing Mum, now to run about collecting leaves before they all shrivel up in the frost!

This tutorial is Mum's own spin of a popular trend this season. Here is a little list of other mason jar/candle inspired projects that we both love:
