DIY Fall Leaf Votives VIDEO

DIY Fall Leaf VotivesI feel like Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that just get completely overlooked. Christmas decorations come out before Halloween even occurs now. Fall holidays seem to get skipped for the Winter ones. So I’ve partnered with Dixie Crystals Kid’s in the Kitchen to do a fun project with the girls to create a nice fall craft that will go perfectly on our Thanksgiving table. These Fall leaf votives are really pretty to place on the table. 

You’ll need to make the sugar paste first, here is what you’ll need.
