Fall luminary "Helmar Design Team"

Hi everyone, Kathleen here with a fun simple and easy decor project for you.  I was cruising through pinterest the other day looking for fun fall designs when I came across this beautiful luminary.  This project can be made with real or silk leaves.  Even a novice like me found it so easy to make featuring Helmar Decoupage and craft Paste

Tips:  After using Helmar Decoupage and craft Paste make sure to wipe the rim of the jar and the lid thoroughly or by golly you will have a heck of a time opening it again.

I used an assortment of different sizes and colors of fall silk leaves.  I found it helps to take off the plastic veins on the back of the leaves before applying them to the jar.  A snip or two on the larger leaves helps in lapping them around the jar. 

With a wide brush in hand apply Helmar Decoupage and craft Paste liberally on the jar then begin adhering the leaves.  I repeated this basic step over and over until I was satisfied with the end results.  Yes, I did stop and let each layer dry before adding the next layer.  I just found it easier that way.

To complete the look I took a nice long length of jute twine and wrapped it around the top using more Helmar Decoupage and craft Paste.  That's it!

Place a small candle in the jar and your beautiful luminary is ready to shine on any table!

I hope this project has inspired you to take those jars out of the cupboard and create  beautiful fall luminaries of your own.
