Still, even though the nights are cool and the sun is going down earlier and earlier, the changing leaves make it very beautiful outside.
While I was outside I decided I needed to use some of those pretty leaves and make something with them. So, I came up with this very simple and very quick project for today.
|Soooo many colours to choose from!
1) Turn on your iron and while you're waiting for it to heat up remove any wrapping on the candle. Then lay a small sheet of wax paper down on a flat surface and place your candle on top. You can start to decide the placement of your leaves.
2) Wrap the wax paper around the candle, covering the leaves, and then gently use your iron to heat up the wax and melt the leaves into the candle.
**Note: test your wax paper first to see if there's a right and wrong side so that you don't leave wax residue on the bottom of your iron.
You don't have to leave your iron on the paper for very long. You'll see the wax melting. Just gently rub the iron around. Lift the wax paper up and place some more leaves down. Repeat the process until your candle is filled and you're happy with how it looks.
Tah dah! That's it. Another project done in less than 5 minutes~
I really love how this adds a little bit of character to an otherwise plain Jane candle (no offense to any Jane's out there).
Do you say Autumn or Fall? What's the difference? I think Autumn sounds a little more swanky and sophisticated. Truth be told, I usually say Fall. Guess I'm not very swanky~
