DIY Leaf-Wrapped Pot Candle Holder

November 07, 2017

This is the perfect project to use up a few of those gorgeous fall leaves outside while creating a pretty centerpiece at the same time! I used leaves that had fallen from my redbud tree to mod podge to the side of the pot (after attaching them first with a couple dots of hot glue), then I put several strands of sock yarn together to tie around the leaves for a more finished look. Soil went in next along with a pot a couple sizes smaller nested into the center. In the smaller pot went a layer of decorative stones to act as a base for the candle, then the candle with more rocks around it for extra support. I planted some sempervivums I transferred from one of my flower beds, and to top it all off, added a couple stems of faux berries! It seems like a lot of steps, but it actually came together very quickly and easily! Hope you enjoyed the video! :) ~Laura
