Step 1: Hot glue the burlap ribbon on the outside of the mason jar's lid. 

Step 2: Fold the yellow ribbon in half and hot glue it to secure.

Step 3: Hot glue the yellow ribbon right below the edge of the lid space. 

Step 4: Screw on the lib with the burlap ribbon. Cut some straw and tie it around the lid space in a bow.

Step 5: Mix together some glue and water(or just buy Mod Podge). 

Step 6: Brush each leaf with the glue mixture and place inside of the mason jar. Once complete to the desired look let it dry. Tip: Apply a second or third layer if the leaves are glue completely to the glass. 

Step 6: Place a small candle inside and light it!
