As I'm sure I've mentioned before, autumn is my favourite time of year, and the Autumn Equinox a festival I like to mark. This year, September in England has been glorious, and I've gathered an eclectic autumn harvest on my rambles. I used some of my collection this weekend to make a centrepiece for my Equinox celebrations:

Using a PVA type glue (one that dries clear), I pasted an assortment of leaves to an old mayonnaise jar, then smeared the entire thing with more glue, finishing it off with a length of hessian ribbon around the top. It's amazing how bright the colours are once the leaves are coated with glue. I wonder if they'll retain the colour as time passes.

Finally, since it's intended as a tealight holder, I sprinkled a layer of golden linseeds in the bottom to give the tealight a base to sit on. When the tealight is lit, it adds a whole new dimension of pretty:

Happy Autumn Equinox y'all.
