Decorating Glass Candle Holders

You can repurpose colorful fallen leaves by using them as decorations for glass candle holders. Get a bunch of fallen leaves and apply spray adhesive to the backs of them. Wrap the leaves around a candle holder and let the stem of each leaf extend slightly past the base. Cut off the leaf overhang at the bottom of the candle holder. When you light a candle inside the candle holder, the leaves will look like beautiful, vibrant flames.

Creating Watercolor Leaf Art

Go outside and look for beautiful leaves with a distinct shape. Next, use a pencil to lightly trace the outlines of the leaves onto good-quality watercolor paper. Dip a paintbrush in water and then carefully fill in the leaf shape. Now dip the brush in watercolor paint and delicately touch the brush to the wet shape in a few spots. Repeat with other colors as needed. This technique will create pretty watercolor leaf art.

Making a Leaf-Stamped Table Runner

You can use fallen leaves of various shapes and sizes to decorate a custom table runner. Measure and cut a length of linen the size of your table. Next, use a paint roller to coat the fallen leaves one at a time in fabric paint. Press the leaves paint-side down onto the runner. Now place a piece of paper on top and then roll over it with a brayer. This will capture the tiny details of the leaves.
