Fall Leaves Candle Holder

We celebrate Autumn with plenty of nature walks to check out the trees. Luckily, in our neighborhood, we have lots of maple trees, which have leaves that turn color and fall. On these walks, we collect the beautiful yellow, orange, and red leaves and bring them home to press in a big book. We do all kinds of fun projects with the pressed leaves: 1. sandwich between clear contact paper and then cut around. Hang these from any ring from fish line or thread to create Fall mobiles or 2. use as-is as leaf decoration or do the contact paper/cut out thing and use as leaf wands (my daughter's invention!). 3. Mod-podge a bunch of them around an old, short, wide vase to make an awesome Autumn candle-holder (see picture...*Project from Twig and Toadstool*)
