Use copper leafing to bring the soft golden glow of the autumn sun indoors. All you need are glass hurricanes, one package of copper leafing, paint brushes and adhesive. First, clean and dry the glass. Then, apply a thin layer of adhesive to inside of the hurricane with a paint brush. Once the glue is clear and tacky, apply full sheets of copper leaf and use a clean paint brush to smooth it out. Insert a candle or tealight and place the finished light on a side table alongside other fall accents like pine cones or leaves for a fully elegant look.
