Fall Candle

 I really liked this month's Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  Fall is my favorite season. I love everything about it- the colors, the smells, the weather, the activities...and we are finally going to have some fall like weather this week so I was excited to make a fall project.  

I really liked the mason jars and candles in the inspiration so I went with that and created a candle holder.  

I stamped leaves from the retired Autumn Leaves stamp set on crinkled up vellum and cut them out.  I like how the crinkled vellum added a leaf-like texture.  The belly band was done using the same technique with the Woodgrain stamp.  I added punched branches and Dahlias to finish it off.  I created a crinkled paper flower for the lid to tie into the inspiration even more!  I filled the jar with crinkled paper confetti and a flameless candle.  This was a fun home decor project just in time for fall!
