Leaf Rubbing Fall Votive Candles

My husband and I have a shelf of fake tea light votives in our bedroom. 

I made them a couple of years ago
with battery powered tea lights (fake candles),
strips of scrapbook paper,
and 8 small juice glasses.

I change the paper occasionally
to match the season -- 
most recently they were in a 
RAINBOW spectrum

It's time for a change so we decided on a 
Rainbow Fall theme!

"C" and "E" collected leaves outdoors
and we all sat down at the kitchen table
with some white copy paper
and our favorite soy crayon rocks

After they finished their leaf rubbings,
we picked our favorites and cut them into 
small strips to fit inside
each juice glass.

Note: Don't use real candles with this project
since the paper is on the INSIDE of the glass! 

I think these would be super cute
on a Thanksgiving Table --
you could even put the person's name
on the rubbing sheet and 
use them as place cards!
