Autumn Lanterns

Fall is on the air! These Autumn lanterns are beautiful and look simple if you’re a little crafty!

Once the leaves are dried a few days later, you can start the work on your lanterns. Gather up your supplies: glass jars, mod podge, leaves, paintbrush and candles. (I used Yankee Candle- Harvest for my candles.) You may also want newspaper to protect your table and rubber bands for stubborn leaves.

  1. Did you have a problem with the leaves drying out or crumbling on you?

  2. Do I have to wait for the leaves to dry?

  3. I never waited for the leaves to dry as I was far to concerned with them breaking or crumbling or losing the vibrant colors.
    I did modgepodge the backs of each leaf as well as the jar to ensure suction adhesion and used jars with no raised surfaces or writing on them.
    Word of advise... let them cure in a shady spot because direct sunlight still causes the leaves to brown even under layers of goop. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. Please don't use my photos without permission. I don't mind you recreating your own version of the craft with your own photography. Here is the direct link to my post - http://nowoodenspoons.blogspot.com/2011/11/autumn-lanterns-tutorial.html
