Fall Leaf Candle Jars

Fall is by far my favorite season! I love it for a thousand reasons… but one of those reasons is that I can finally start lighting candles again. Summer here is too too hot for candles, but I just love them! I love the soft glow, the amazing smells and that cozy feel that they give you!

And so I was so happy to create this candle holder for the fall season. It is super easy, and really pretty. The leaves have such a cool effect with the candlelight glowing through them!


  • Mod Podge (or watered down white glue)
  • Leaves (cloth is preferable)
  • Glass Jar
  • Paintbrush

Step 1: Prepare your leaves and jar

To prepare your leaves and jar remove the plastic from the back of your leaves. Wash them in the dishwasher or washing machine or iron them in order to soften them. This will make it easier for them to stick to the jar. Clean your jar with rubbing alcohol or in the dishwasher. Your leaves will not stick if it is dirty or greasy.

Step 2: Glue on your leaves

You can do step 2 in one of two ways…

1: Paint glue onto your jar and stick your leaves around the jar where you have placed the glue.

2: Paint glue onto the backside of your leaf and add one leaf at a time placing it where you would like to on your jar.

Step 3:

Allow your leaves to dry and then paint a coat of Mod Podge on top of your leaves all around your jar. Allow to dry.

Add glue underneath and on top of corners that are still sticking up once it has dried.

When your jar is completely dry add some twine around the rim.

Place a tea light candle into your jar and light it! Pick a Fall sent to make your candle holder even more special for the autumn season!

My favorite is pumpkin spice!

Happy creating and enjoy your Fall!
