With fall in the air and the gorgeous trees changing colors, what better time to create a quick craft using leaves for a fall decoration. This month my 12-year-old daughter, Emma Grace, took it upon herself to takeover my DIY craft and I have to say I donﾕt think I could have done this craft any better. The finished product will look great in any room of the house and will create an attractive, warm glow. This DIY craft requires a few supplies that can be found at most dollar stores or craft stores.
A crafty 12-year-old!
Fake fall leaves – (our leaves purchased from the dollar store)
Light bulb with cord to plug
Hot glue gun
Hot glue sticks
Step 1 — Take the hot glue gun and apply glue to the tops of the leaves and place inside the mason jar.
Step 2 — When the inside of the mason jar is covered with leaves, snip the top where the leaves may be poking out of the jar.
Step 3 — Tie a piece of raffia around the jar.
Step 4 — Place the bulb in the jar.
Step 5 — Display and receive lots of oohs and ahs.
