This is a very low cost project with a big payoff. You just need modge podge (or watered down white glue...much cheaper than modge podge). A glass "candle holder". Today we used real glasses that were $.99 each. Tissue paper. Everyone has tissue paper in the craft closet, and beautiful leaves from a Central NY autumn.
We glued the leaves onto the glass first. Put a layer of glue onto the glass before placing the leaf on the glass. Once the leaves are set.. begin adding tissue paper.
Cover the whole glass with tissue paper. We used three autumn colors, but in the past we have used one color and that also turned out pretty.
I had to add this photo because I want to remember what Luke thinks of touching the glue!
We added beaded stickers to the glasses after all the glue had dried. I found with at Walmart for $2.87, The stickers were the most expensive part of this project.
Add a votive candle to the glass...
I hope everyone is having a wonderful fall.
Tomorrow we have a weather forecast predicting 2 inches of snow.....winter is on the way!
I can't believe we are almost done with the third week of October. The leaves are falling and the breeze is getting cool. It's too bad that schoolwork isn't getting done like it should, but with the beautiful weather we've had a few unexpected distractions, it couldn't be helped.

Dan turned 24 this week...
Dan received a Dr. Who scarf as a gift...well, acutally, it was a small portion of a scarf, with knitting needles attached and a photo of the finished product.
There is sure to be many more leaves to fall before "fall" is over.
