As the autumn leaves start to tumble to the earth, we wanted to preserve their beauty, so we did a bit of sticking and glueing and made some adorable lanterns which we light as the evenings draw in.

You will need:-

1 jam jar- we found the flat sided ones the easiest

a dollop of modge podge

a selection of small sized autumn leaves, personally the brown looked beautiful

twine for the neck

scissors

newspaper
