Fall Jar Tea Light Holder – DIY Dollar Store Crafts

When it comes to colours, Fall is my favourite colour. I love when the cooler weather arrives and the leaves start to change. It’s so beautiful to see that I wanted to bring more of the bright reds and oranges into my decor for the season. We love changing our decor with the seasons and holidays. This fall season I am going to make a Fall jar tea light holder. I have so many jars that I have collected from sauces, this is the perfect DIY project to use some of them up.

When you have a variety of low lights, it gives off a nice relaxing mood to set the evening right. It may even put you to sleep. Well, it does me, so I am glad the tea light is battery operated.

Fall Jar Tea Light Holder

Materials Needed:

  • jars ( you can find at a dollar store if you don’t have any empty ones)
  • battery operated tea lights
  • fall leaves (dollar store)
  • glue gun and glue
  • ribbon or  jute for the rim of the jar

If you are using a jar that had food in it, make sure it is cleaned out well and remove the label.

Remove the stems from the leaves if they have them. Just find a corner and peel back the stem.

Heat up the glue in your glue gun, when it is ready, you can begin glueing the leaves randomly on the jar.

Start at the bottom working your way up to to the top creating a pattern of overlapping the leaves to cover the jar.

Add the ribbon to the rim of the jar. I used jute and wrapped it around a few times and tie it off in a bow or leave the ends hanging loosely as I did. Remove any loose glue webs that may be around the jar.

Finally, add the battery operated tea light and your candle holder is ready. You can use it as a centrepiece or place it on a table or fireplace mantle to add a glow to your fall decor.
