I found this craft last year at Salt and Chocolate and saved it because I knew it was something I would want to try. Although Mary Beth used regular mason jars, School in ‘R Home (which originally shared this project via The Crafty Crow) used small votives. Well, all I had was a ginormas pickle jar and an olive jar from the recycling. I decided to go with the pickle jar. I have no idea why I had this, but I had been keeping it back for a while.
We picked our leaves. I dried them for a day between parchment paper in my heavy atlas. They were still flexible though, and not crunchy at all. I decided to glue the leaves myself, because I was afraid that they would be torn. I just used regular school glue. We weren’t able to start back onto the project for a few days, which was ok, but the leaves were a little dry. Also the school glue wasn’t strong enough to hold it in places so I had to go back with a hot glue gun. For time, it probably would have been better to start with the hot glue.
