I love decorating for the holidays, and it if involves having to make something from my crafty stash, I’m even happier! Sometimes it’s just a little extra touch that can make all the difference in creating a little warmth in the home for the season. To bring some of the Fall indoors, I made a simple candle that I can keep on my entry table or kitchen island for the entire season.
Starting with a leaf cut pattern that I had included on my Silhouette, I cut three copies from Red Lacquer metallic cardstock. If you don’t have a silhouette, you could trace a leaf pattern and cut it out to create a version of your own.
I inked up the edges of all three leaves, concentrating mostly on one of the leaves that will be the focus of the embellishment. I also stamped a crackle look with gold pigment ink to give it some more interest. I love the sparkle from the metallic cardstock!
I stacked all three leaves, adhering them together with Tombow 3D foam tabs.
For my candle, I grabbed a quart mason jar, filled it with coffee beans and then wrapped it with a burlap scrap and brown twine. Not only does this project have a great look, it smells good too! I used a flameless candle to top it all off.
Attaching the leaf embellishment to the front was super easy using the Glue Dot 1″ strips. They are super strong and easy to bend into whatever shapes I need.
