Simply watch the video or follow the few steps below to create your very own DIY Autumn Candle Jars!

What you need:

  • Jars
  • Spray paint
  • Twine
  • Autumn leaf (as a stencil)
  • Candles
  • Small pebbles
  • Sticky tape

What to do:

  1. Using the sticky tape, carefully position the leaf onto the jar at mid-way point.
  2. Spray paint the jar from a safe 20cm distance to avoid blotting. Make sure to spray carefully around the leaf stencil. Let the jar completely dry.
  3. Remove the leaf and sticky tape from the jar.
  4. Decorate the rim of the jar by wrapping twine and tying in a bow.
  5. Fill the bottom of the jar with the small pebbles, just enough to hold the candle in place.
  6. Place the candle into the jar and carefully light for delightfully warm autumn vibes!
