Hmm..you’ll be thinking, more candle holders?? Well, I love them so much that I cant seem to keep my hands off making them. So here goes another. I found a lovely green colored empty wine bottle at my cousin’s place. She was too generous to give it to me and my mind started racing as to what should be done to make it a fabulous candle holder. Here is what I did to a plain green bottle:
I was always in love with how beautiful and magnificent the maple and oak leaves look in the fall season. In
however, we do not have maple trees. I really missed the magic of red, orange and gold leaves. All those who live in the countries abroad must be having such fun with these fall leaves. Now, I wasn’t the one to just imagine; I had to make a fall inspired candle holder somehow. India
So I set to cut out paper maple, oak and other fall leaves to make my own fall collection, even if out of paper, lol! Find out how:
I cut them up, then painted them (or tried to!!) paint them in the colors of fall: tan, red, burgundy, orange.
Okay, you may find these funny as fall leaves, but they are MY fall leaves all rite!
I went ahead and stuck them in a random fashion onto my glass bottle with some fast glue. Remember that there is no specific pattern to be followed here, its all random.
After it was all dry, I outlined each leaf with the help of a gold glass liner and let it dry for another 2 hours. I know you must be thinking, drying? Again? Lol!
Tada! I captured the fall season alrite, and the memory will glow proudly as I light the candle up….
