MYO Autumn Candle Holder

It’s that time of year again… the heating might have come on, those cosy socks have made an appearance and if you’re anything like some people in our office you might even be wearing a scarf (naming no names… Fiona).

It’s autumn! Now I know October isn’t everyone’s favourite month, it means summer is well and truly over although we arguably didn’t get much of one this year anyway. Don’t be too down though! Autumn has a lot to offer: Halloween, Bonfire Night, pumpkin spiced lattes and of course… this DIY project.

So, keep reading for our step-by-step guide on how to make a super cute DIY autumn mason jar tea light holder.
