Fall candle holder made from every day items.

Approximate Time: 1 hour



First, glue the clay pot upside down onto the dinner plate, then glue the butter bowl bottom side down on to clay pot then glue saucer onto butter bowl. Spray paint the whole thing any color you want, I chose yellow. Let dry then decorate as you like with the foliage, any way you want. Put your candle in and enjoy.

I added the spider I made from pom poms and pipe cleaners for that Halloween feel, LOL.

First off, grab a vase or large jar that can fit the leaves you have chosen. I went for a large mouthed, tall, skinny vase, but any jar would do as well.

These placemats will be perfect from September to November. The bright clean fall colors will go great with any natural centerpieces or you can find beautiful silk mums and fall leaves this time of year.

I enjoy going out into the yard with a roll of clear tape (narrow or wide) and gathering leaves that will fit the width of the tape & placing them onto the tape along whatever length I want it to be.


I have even pulled up tiny flowering plants from down in the grass & used them as well as leaves & flowers root & all.
When finished take it inside & top the first piece with another piece of clear tape to sandwich your leaves/plants/flowers in the middle!
The ones with roots look really interesting.
If you get leaves with holes that's OK - it makes "lace" !
Place your project in the window so the light will shine through it & enjoy a little outside indoors!
This will last quite awhile!

I had some carpet tubing and tubes from crochet thread. With some hot glue, fabric strips, and silk flowers, I made a unique planter - of sorts!
