Top 5 Fall DIY Projects

Fall is my favorite season, hands-down. The changing leaves, layering of clothes, and endless crafts draw me in. In honor of my favorite season, I found five DIY projects that I’d like to try before the first snow. Try one out or give it a unique twist. Show us by posting a pic of your craft on our Facebook page. Let’s Get Creative!

1. Wax Leaves
Make sure your leaves are completely dry. Melt beeswax in a double-boiler. You can use new wax or old candle stubs (optional – add a few drops of scented oil). When the wax is thoroughly melted, take the leaves by the stem and immerse them, one at a time, in the wax. Hold them over the pot to drip a bit, then lay them on waxed paper to dry.

2. Glitter Candles
Take a wide-base candle and paint completely in Mod Podge. Roll the candle in epsom salts to give a sparkly coat.

3. Newsy Nails
This may not be directly related to fall, but nude colored nails are in this season. Cut squares of newsprint larger than nails. Apply a base coat of polish. When nails are completely dry, soak them in rubbing alcohol, then press newsprint on nail and slowly pull off. Paint with top coat to seal.

4. Apple Candle Holders
Hollow out the top of an apple to fit a tea candle. Place candle in hollow. Light and let wax spill down the apple.

5. Edible Acorn Treats
Use frosting to stick a mini vanilla wafer cookie to the bottom of a Hershey’s kiss (both flat sides should touch). Stick a butterscotch chip on the rounded side of the cookie to look like a stem. Squirrels will be jealous.
