Check out this super easy DIY project to spruce up your candles for Fall... Now that my mantle is decorated, I wanted to bring more Fall color to my kitchen table.
I started with a hurricane candle trio that I've had for several years. I am using faux battery operated candles that are made from real wax. They have a realistic look without the danger of fire.
I used jute twine and faux Fall leaves to bring the look of Fall to these candles.
I put one leaf on each side of my candles (since they will be sitting in the center of my table I wanted a leaf to show from each side). I held the leaves down while twisting the twine around the center of the candle three times. Then I tied the twine in a knot centered on one of the leaves. Last I cut the twine ends so it wasn't hanging too long.
I did the same process on all three of my candles. Here is what they look like now. I love how something so simple adds so much color and charm to these beauties!
I placed the glass hurricanes back over them and now they are ready to go. The glass creates a glare on the photo, but you get the idea.
I will be able to use these candles throughout the entire Fall season. I will add pine cones, a few birch branches and more leaves down the center of the table for our Thanksgiving family gathering. When I do, I will be sure to share more pictures :)
