Fall Leaves Candle Holder #fall crafts #leaves

Pam from Gingerbread Snowflakes created this beautiful fall leaf candle holder out of a mason jar and bright fall leaves.   Add a tea light candle and it creates a wonderful warm glow.  A simple idea that can really go far.  Wouldn’t this be beautiful as a centerpiece?  Be sure to check out Pam’s tutorial and take a look around her site while you are at it.  Lot’s of great crafty ideas there!
