Peek-a-boo autumn leaf jar candle

Hello there,

"Bunt sind schon die Wälder, gelb die Stoppelfelder, und der Herbst beginnt. Rote Blätter fallen, graue Nebel wallen, kühler weht der Wind!" [German folk song]

This means all the forrests are colored now. The days are getting shorter and the nights colder.The time to stay cozy, starts. I like to light some candles in the evening. Maybe with some " autumn " smell?!? Some time ago I saw very nice autumn-themed-candles in jars over at Pinterest and I thought to myself that they, slightly modified, were perfect and easy to make.

So I took 4 baby food jars that I had in stock,
cut out some autumn leafs from self-adhesive vinyl with my silhouette and glued them onto the jars. (Please make sure that the jars are free from dust and grease.) Then I painted the whole jars with crafters paint and allowed them to dry for about 2-3 hours. After making sure the paint is all dry I removed the silhouette leaf. Then I filled a bit of color matching legumes and a tealight into the jar.

Here's my version of the jar-candles.
It looks that nice with the different colors shining through the stained jars.

In the backround you'll maybe peek some buddies like Turkey, Scarecrow and Sam Hain from last year.

Stay cozy 'til next time
