DIY Autumn Leaf Lantern by 5orangepotatoes: 'First cover a side of a glass jar with Mod podge, then place a pressed leaf (pressed for at least 36 hours) on the Mod Podge, then cover the leaf with Mod Podge. You can layer the leaves on top of each other as long as you have the Mod Podge on them. After the leaves dry I would put another coat of Mod Podge over the entire jar to seal the leaves.' #DIY #Lantern #Leaf_Lantern #5orangepotatoes
DIY: collect fallen leaves, melt candlewax into a pan and drop the leaves in. When both sides are covered, dip them in glitter and then hang them up by ribbons to dry. Daily update on my site: ediy3.com
waxed leaves... Make sure your leaves are completely dry. Melt some beeswax in a double-boiler. You can use new wax or old candle stubs (optional - add a few drops of cinnamon oil). When the wax is thoroughly melted, take the leaves by the stem and immerse them, one at a time, in the wax. Hold them over the pot to drip a bit, then lay them on waxed paper to dry.
Recycle glass bottles - Mix water, glue, and food coloring, coat the inside of the glass jar, then turn it upside down to dry for 1 hr. After that, leave it out to dry for 2 days (instead of baking it)
Take glue and water, and brush the inside of mason jars. Adding water to Elmer’s glue helps it brush on easier. Add glitter of your choice to the inside of the jars, and roll/spin the jar around until the glitter coats the sides. Add a tea light after it dries, and voila!
