Fall Leaf Candles

I had gotten 2 bags of leaves from the dollar store not knowing exactly what I would be making. Then I saw some Pottery Barn knockoff leaf ideas Here and went to work creating my own.
Bag of leaves (Dollar Store)
hot glue
rubber band

1. Put a rubber band around the candle to hold leaves in place.
2. Tuck leaves under rubber band (I secured them with just a dab of hot glue but you have to be quick cause it will melt the wax a little)
3. When all your leaves are on wrap raffia around a couple time and tie with a bow - remove rubber band. (again I secured the raffia bow with just a dab of hot glue).
4. last I added some small berry accents for more color.
