* 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.
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.
