Forever Autumn

The Japanese Maple in our garden is shedding beautiful leaves - creating a colourful blanket on our patio.
I had to do something with these - such a shame to allow them to decay.

A tea light holder ... using the trusty jar
I used PVA glue to paste the leaves around the jar 
Once dry, I simply wrapped and tied some raffia around the neck of the jar
I've been wanting to use this raffia for sometime and the gold and bronze were perfect for this project
A simple autumn decoration; preserving the beauty of season and helping to add warmth to the home on these increasingly cooler evenings
