Way back in 2005, we needed a fun project to keep our minds off of the fact that our little dog was having her spay surgery (waiting is the worst). It was fall, and there was an abundance of dried leaves in the yard. So of course I knew that we needed to make a fun fall "lamp"!
Using cream tissue paper, leaves, and ModPoge (plus a string of white twinkle lights), the fun fall lamp was created. In the daytime when the lights aren't on, it just looks like a jar covered in paper, it isn't until you turn the lights on that the leaves really show up. That is exactly how I wanted it. If you made one, you could cover the entire outside with just leaves, or maybe leave some of the glass open and not covered. The possibilities are many!
I'm thinking of making another fun jar like this for Christmas, and Valentine's Day. There are so many ways that this could be done, and it's a nice way to reuse old jars that you would otherwise throw out!
