Autumn Leaf Candleholders Make for the Perfect Thanksgiving Decor

If you’re in a pinch for Thanksgiving dinner décor, here’s an idea with minimum effort and maximum wow factor. These beautiful candleholders adorned with artificial leaves provide a nice pop of autumnal colors while taking up very little of your precious table space. The light that filters through the leaves is soft and warm, but be sure to use battery-operated LED candles so the leaves won’t burn. 

What You’ll Need:
Glass candleholder
Artificial leaves
Hot glue


1. Remove the artificial leaves from their plastic stems and veins.

2. Apply a dab of hot glue to the bottom of each leaf. Be careful with the hot glue.

3. Working from the top down, position the leaves around the candleholder. Overlap rows of leaves as you work down.

4. When you get to the bottom, turn the candleholder upside down to get better access for the final row of leaves.
