Filter Paper leave

Good morning!  Hope you are well and in good spirits!  (My upline sent an email out this morning with that greeting...and I loved it...so I used it...she said her priest always greets her that way).

On to today's project!  I'm back with another filter leaves project...a candle holder!  Hope you like it!

I just recycled a jar that I saved because I loved the shape of it!  I used Mod Podge to adhere the leaves to the glass.  I added some burlap ribbon around the mouth of the jar...attached some leaves, some burlap twine and a burlap flower!  


To make the burlap twine...you simply cut the edge off of one side of your burlap ribbon and take it apart...the twine is beautiful!


To make the burlap flower...cut a piece of burlap about 4" long, fold it in half lengthwise and stitch along the long edge...up and down...then pull it together and stitch the ends together.  I adhered a punched circle piece of card stock to the back in order to attach the brad.  I love it!!


Here it is with a lit candle in it!  The photo doesn't show how really beautiful it is shining through the colored leaves!

I love fall and hope to share a few more projects with you soon!  

Have a FANTASTIC day!

Thanks for stopping by....see ya tomorrow!
