Kilner Autumn Craft Inspiration

I love taking long walks in the countryside in autumn and kicking through all the beautiful fiery leaves. This is where I found the inspiration for the next autumn idea:

Kilner Autumn Leaves Lamp

Simply select a handful of beautiful autumn leaves, dry them out and decoupage your Kilner jar. Now drop in a tea light.

Remember to make a wish when you blow it out!
