Stir until the color if your choice looks pretty
Step 3: Pour
Pour your glue, water, colored concoction into the jar of your choice.
Rotate the jar until the pretty color coats the entire inside of the jar from top to bottom.
When done, flip the jar upside down on a paper plate and let it sit for 5 minutes. The extra will just leak out.. This is good. Don't panic.

Put the jar on the tray. Keep it upside down. Bake for 6 minutes.
Remove from oven. Place a fresh piece of tin foil over the icky part and flip the jar ight side up and let it bake for 30-60 minutes depending on the size of your jar.
Step 5: Check It
Check on it every now and than. It'll become more and more transparent and pretty!
When done- remove from the oven WITH OVEN MITTS and let it sit until it cools.

When the jar is cooled.. Mod podge the pressed leaves from your own backyard and paste them to the jar. Its messy but fun!
** I pressed my leaves in a dictionary for 3 days and they came out perfect. No need to go crazy.
Step 7: Let Dry
Let the leaves on the jar dry.. Than second coat it with mod podge.
Once all dried out.. Add a fake candle or light!
