DIY Fall Leaves Jar// Home Decoration
I want to share with you a little decoration I made for my bedroom last night. It was a bit of a spur of the moment thing but it turned out really pretty! My Mum and I had actually planned to make a leaf mason jar; except we bought PVA glue, hoping to stick the leaves we'd gathered on a puppy walk onto the inside walls of the jar. The idea was to be able to light a candle inside without causing a fire hazard and the leaves would be all lit up and colourful....
Now, the bad news. The glue just wouldn't attach the leaves to the glass (I've seen online that you need a special glue called 'Mod Podge' if you want to give it a go!) and we ended up with a sticky mess. But because the leaves were such beautiful colours I decided to change direction and instead I filled my jar with the best leaves I'd picked and also some cute, teeny pine cones on branches- they probably have a proper name but I can't think what they're called!
I absolutely love this as an autumnal decoration and think it has a really vintage feel. I love that it also embraces the lovely autumn nature around us as I'm such a country girl. I'm looking forward to getting into bed and having a piece of outside to look at while I burn some gorgeous scents. I hope you will love it and have a go too!
