Create Tealights with Fall Leaves

There are a lot of beautiful fall leaves out there drifting their way towards the ground. Hurry up and get crafty with them before they’re all gone!

What You Need:
Glue gun and clear glue sticks
Cork board, 3x3inches or whatever you want
Fresh, brightly colored fall leaves from outside
6 small acorns
1 tea light

Be sure to start with fresh leaves because as they dry, they will shrivel up and curl a little!

1. Apply a small amount of glue to the base of each leaf (leaving the stems on for now) and attach to the cork board, one at a time.

Alternate the colors so that reds, yellows and greens are spread out all around and leave an opening in the center large enough for the tea light to sit in.

2. Cut off the stems with an XActo knife once the glue has set.

3. Glue two or three acorns together to create a bunch effect.

4. Once the glue on the acorns has hardened, glue the bunches around where the tealight will sit. But NOT to the tea light.

5. Set the tealight in place.

6. The leaves will dry out and curl up over the next couple of days, so don’t leave the tealight burning attended!
