DIY Fall Candle Centerpiece | The Evermine Blog |
The warm glow of candlelight is so very romantic, isn’t it? As the summer turns to autumn, doesn’t it seem that the light outdoors is that of a flickering candle? The colors of fallen leaves are so bright and fiery, as the sun sits low in the sky bathing every surface in golden light.

It’s that feeling that I wanted to capture for these candles. Something that celebrates the romance of the season and celebrates its earthiness.

I wanted to add to the theme of the season by printing off a favorite quote for autumn:

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”
―Emily Brontë

I added this tag to a larger mason jar filled with balls wrapped with twine. This trio would be a lovely centerpiece at a fall wedding or event.

  1. These are so pretty! I may dip the leaves in melted beeswax first to keep them from becoming brittle. This will also preserve the color a little longer~ the poem is a nice touch. I’m looking forward to giving some as teacher gifts, thanks for posting!
