Easy Fall Decorations: Candle with Burlap and Leaves

Here is a super easy and seasonal way to welcome the crisper weather as fall fully arrives.

These fall decorations are easy to make and versatile since you can change the decorations to other themes. You can keep the candle base up all year and change out the center bands to match the current season. In fact, you can check out what I did with these same candles for the 4th of July!  It’s a great way to add simple beautiful decoration to your home!

They’re also pretty cheap to make. I found the pillar candles on sale and only spent about $3 for the other pieces.

 

Since fall is in the air, be sure to have your Chai Flavored Hot Cider near by while you craft 😉

Materials Needed:

Start by hot gluing the burlap/lace ribbon onto each of the 3 pillar candles.

This will be the neutral base that can be used all year long – not just for these fall decorations.

Now you will need to cut 9 strands of jute, approximately 20″ long.  This may vary depending on the width of the candle – just be sure it is long enough to tie around your candle.  Take 3 of the jute strands and knot them together on each end, so that you have 3 jute bundles of 3 strands each.

Get your hot glue gun handy again, and glue one of the leaf bundles onto the center of the jute strands.  Do that for each one.

When it dries, you can go ahead and tie one on each of the candles – putting the acorn on the center candle.

This is a versatile decoration in that we can easily remove these jute strand fall decorations when Christmas rolls around. Then we can either display our neutral candles with just the burlap and lace, or make some new Christmas bands to tie around the candles.  (for example – use a poinsettia flower on green ribbon at Christmas time.)

If you decide to make these yourself, I would just LOVE to see some pics!  🙂
