Fall Fireplace Mantel Display

Even your youngest child can help with this super easy mantel display.  Pick up pine cones and add these cute votive candle holders in between each cone.  They are made by painting the outside of a baby food jar.  Add a tea candle inside and viola’!

 

Here’s a close up…It just doesn’t do the candle justice!  These really are beautiful when lit at night!  They create a very beautiful orange glow.

Another variation of this festive candle that will keep those little hands busy uses the “decoupaging technique.”  You will need brown, orange, and yellow tissue paper squares, glue (watered down a bit), paint brushes (for spreading the glue on the jar and paper squares), and baby food jars.  That’s it!!  These will also make really pretty decorations for your Thanksgiving table.
