Autumn Crafts | Autumn Tealight Baubles!

Hi! I’m back with another Autumn Craft Tutorial for you!

I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with natural materials I’ve found on my autumn strolls this year and I think I’ve come up with one that’s not only great for Autumn but will carry you all the way up to Christmas too!

Autumn Tealight Baubles!     



OK truth be told between brain storming, coming up with ideas and actually trying them out, I've gone from fancy to rustic. I tried all sorts of ideas but just loved the natural look the most so that's the one I'm going to share here. The good news is this means you'll be able to do this whole DIY in less than an hour, but if you want to add your own touches these would still look great with a sprinkle of glitter, or a splash of metallic paint or festive colours. It's completely up to you!

For this one you’re going to need:

  • Your choice of conkers, acorns, dried leaves, pine cones or whatever you can get your hands on from around your area (Hunt around your local nature hot spots or you can buy these easily online or in your local craft shop, real or artificial if you prefer)
  • Glass or Acrylic bauble terrariums (Splittable baubles or even a mason jar would look great too!)
  • Battery powered tea lights (do not use anything with a real flame for this)
  • Twine

You could also recreate these as standing candle holders, or a beautiful large centre piece for your table!

Honestly and simple, all your need to do to make these is arrange your choice of natural materials in whatever way that makes you happy, place your tea light in the middle, tie a long length of twine to the top, and decorate your home! Honestly, that's it!





It couldn’t be an easier DIY.

TIPS:


  • This can get pretty fiddly so first things first, get your patience out you're going to need it!
  • If its getting too fiddly and you find placing your tealight too difficult, you could use a strong clear glue to fix your leaves etc inside the glass, and use a piece of blue tack to keep your tea light in place.
  • I quite like to white of the candle, but if you prefer you could also paint them to blend in with the foliage.
Really, it's up to you. There’s so many different things you can do with this, the possibilities are endless, and with the right colour scheme these could last you all the way through to Christmas and take pride of place on your Christmas tree (if you celebrate of course!).

I hope you have fun experimenting with different mediums and containers, and remember if you have a go tag me @theasthinkings and share your masterpiece on twitter, Pinterest and Instagram!
