DIY Autumn Leaf Jar

Heey guys, this week I'm going to do a collab with Floral Chummys, we're both doing DIY posts and her's is a DIY Lip Scrub, so go and check it out!

What you will need

Small jar (I used an old marmalade one)
PVA glue
Handful of leaves
Elastic bands


First you'll need to press the leaves by putting them in kitchen roll and flattening them between a book. This should take around 3 days and will make it 100 times easier to apply them to the jar. You will also need to soak off the jar label with hot sopey water.

After you've done this use a paintbrush to apply the PVA glue (you could use mod podge if you're in America, although I don't quite know what it does) to one leaf and place it on your jar. It may start to slide around a bit, so if it does take an elastic band and wrap it around the jar to hold the leaf in place. One the glue has dried remove the elastic band and repeat until the whole jar is covered and all the glue has dried.

Once this is complete pva the whole of the jar, so that the leaves become completely sealed and also glossy, then put somewhere to dry again. (I find an airing cupboard is the best place)

To finish off the jar you could put some straw around the rim (I didn't have any to hand) and then light a candle and drop it into the jar, so that the leaves glow.

And that's it! I hope you guys liked this post, and if you want to see more DIY posts, please let me know, because this was so much fun to make! I'm also currently in the middle of creating a new blog, which is going to be the same but with a domain name and a new (more professional) theme. It should be up in the new year, I'm soooo excited!!

See you soon...
