Yield: one jar candle holder
- 250g empty cheese spread glass jar
- white cotton twine
- leftover pieces of red, yellow and orange cardstock

- Spray the bottle with the Heritage spray-on contact glue and glue the twine to the bottle.
- Wind the twine in a criss-cross pattern tightly all around the bottle. Cover the bottle up to the lip around the neck.
- Continue winding the twine all around the bottle until you reach the end of the twine, or until the bottle has been completely covered.
- Press the end of the twine down and use some Bostik Clear to keep it in place.
- Punch four red, three yellow, and three orange maple leaves from the cardstock.
- Use the Bostik Clear to glue the leaves all around the jar.
