Instead of buying Autumn decorations make your own fall Mason jar decoration for your home. You will need a few items to create this project:
- Mini glue gun
- Glue sticks
- Mason jars
- Fake autumn leaves
- Real press dried autumn leaves
- Tea light candles
- Apple cinnamon potpourri
- Raffia or twine
- Use a larger Mason jar and wrap several layers of raffia around the neck of the jar and you can wrap it around the length of the jar loosely if you like. Next, hot glue leaves all over the jar using a glue stick to push the leaves in place to avoid burning yourself with hot glue. Add more or less leaves as desired to your jar design.
- Add cinnamon potpourri in the jar as filler either half way or full then add a flame less tea light on top to resemble a burning candle jar.
The following list includes directions for a different Mason jar decoration.
Fall Leaf Mason Jar Craft
Do it yourself fall leaf Mason jar crafts that are easy to make within minutes.
Chose a jar size
Choose a Mason jar of any size and tie a piece of raffia or twin around the neck of the jar. Tie a piece around in a bow using a small or large piece of raffia.
Layout pattern then glue on leaves
Randomly hot glue leaves onto the Mason jar, if using a small jar you can layer different shape, sizes and colors of the leaves onto the jar. Do a mock up by planning ahead of time how you want it to look so you do not damage leaves trying to remove them. You can do a single side of the jar if it is going to be on a closed shelf but otherwise you can double side the same design on both sides.
Fill the Mason jar with scented potpourri
Fill the inside of the Mason jar with autumn scented potpourri as full as you want. Using different levels of potpourri gives each jar a unique look.
