• Essence of Fall Nature Luminaries


    Complement your fall decor with these beautiful natural luminaries.


    * Several Colorful Leaves (from your last nature walk!)
    * Glass votive Holder (dollar store has them!)
    * White Tissue Paper, torn into 2" strips
    * Craft Glue such as Modge Podge

    Gather several pretty leaves with varying colors in them.


    Place them on a sheet of wax paper and cover with a heavy book/object for 1 hour to flatten them.


    Spread a layer of craft glue and adhere the leaves into place. Allow to dry.


    Mix 1 T. Craft glue & 1 T. Warm water to create a decoupage paste/glue.


    Apply tissue paper pieces, 1 at a time, "painting" them on with the decoupage glue. Overlap the pieces until the entire votive is covered. Overlap the lip/edge of the votive going approx 1/4 inch into the glass.


    Be sure to thoroughly decoupage ALL of the tissue paper.




    Dry overnight. To use, insert a tealight and Voila, Natural Luminaries.

    Please Note, Candles should not be left unattended.

      Wow, these are really beautiful, thank you for sharing them. I think they'd be pretty if made with spring and summer flowers that have been dried as well.
