what you will need:
fall leaves (preferably ones that are not totally dried out)
glass votives, jars or containers
double stick tape
1) collect your leaves and coat both sides of leaves with two coats of clear poly-crylic. this preserves the color and prevents them from drying out.
2) when they are dry you can trim them down to fit the size of your votives. make sure the leaves stop about a half inch down from the top of the glass. *you do not want the tips of the leaves going over or near the top of the glass. this will prevent them from catching on fire.
3) when you have them trimmed add some double stick tape to the back of the leaves and place them onto the glass.
4) finally tie a piece of twine around the votive to secure in them in place. light a candle and enjoy the colorful glow.
