Falling Leaf Candles

Here's an easy-to-make gift that will add to an evening of enchantment.

What You Need:

Embellish these autumn candles with
green leaves or pieces of fern.

  • Pliable real or artificial leaves in autumn colors
  • Glue stick
  • White pillar candle
  • White taper candle


1. Apply glue stick to the back of each leaf. Press onto the pillar candle for temporary adhesion. On a protected work surface, lay the candle carefully on its side. 2. Light a white taper candle and let the wax drip over the leaves until all or mostly covered. Let the wax cool and harden. Turn the candle and repeat until all leaves are embedded in wax.
