I feel like a treasure hunter whenever I visit my local dollar store. I never know what $1 gems I’m going to find that can be transformed into something wonderful. On one of my most recent visits I found some pretty paper napkins with a fall leaf pattern. My mind immediately went to decoupage, so I went to find some glass vases. This simple fall decoupage candle holder dollar store craft project turned out so cute and only cost about $5 to make. I ended up gifting this to my daughter-in-law, because I already have way too much fall decor thanks to many dollar store crafts I’ve done in the past. It’s my favorite time of the year!
What You’ll Need:
fall leaves (cut from paper napkins or silk leaves)
small glass vases
medium size paint brush
Using a paint brush, smear Modge Podge all over the outside of your vases.
Place your first layer of leaves right onto the Modge Podge. Brush over them with some additional Modge Podge. Add some more leaves, slightly overlapping them if you like. Continue adding leaves and Modge Podge until your vase is significantly covered.
Give the candle holders a stippled effect by gently dabbing the candle holder with the end of your paint brush.
Allow to dry over night.
