Leaf Wrapped Mason Jars

Ahhhh! The fall season brings out the homebody in us all.  Were there ever such things as bathing suits and sunblock? If there were, I don't remember them.  Around this time of year, all I want to do is relax, sip a cup of hot tea and enjoy the glow of our fireplace and the smell of pumpkin spice candles.  Bringing warmth and ambiance into a home is easy and inexpensive with these leaf wrapped mason jars.  I bought the mason jars and leaves at Hobby Lobby, and the twine I found lying around in our garage. Yippy. I bought leaves that had a little bit of bend to them so they wrapped around the mason jars easily, but you can use any type of leaves you find.  I formed the leaves around the jars, tied the twine around them and made a bow.  I didn't want to melt votive candle inside, so I bought the small jar candles from Wal-mart and placed them inside.  No mess at the end of the candle.  When the candles are lit, a beautiful glow shines through the leaves.  It really is like having little fireplaces all over your house.
