These leaf candles were collected over a period of 6 months or so. I just kept finding leaves here and there, and my mom brought me some as well. So I pulled them together into a single garden and I think it works well. The colors of the leaves seem like autumn to me, rather than new summer leaves. I added some little plastic leaves that I bought at the dollar store, I think they go nicely. The base is something I also picked up at a dollar store, I guess it’s supposed to be a generic wall print but I think it works great as a candle base and I would use this type of base again. The large item in the arrangement is rather interesting, it’s basically a tea light holder made from wax. I was hoping it would melt along with the leaves but that didn’t work out. The leaves did melt in an interesting way though, so I am somewhat okay with how it turned out. I’m keeping the burgundy tea light holder to use in another arrangement; I would like to arrange candles close to it so it melts nicely.
