Light Up Your Autumn

Posted on

Greetings Sunday readers!

As promised, even if the weather isn’t complying, I am going to continue hoping that autumn will burst forth with a riot of lovely colors and I will be ready to meet it with my crafts! Last week we had some great warm crafts and this week I’d like to continue the warmth idea with a few ideas for fall candles.

First I thought, what about the scent of autumn? The leaves, the crisp air, and most of all the spices! I would love to have a spicy pie scent permeating my home. So I found this lovely pumpkin pie a la mode DIY candle:

Mmmmmmm....tasty.

Mmmmmmm….tasty.

It looks and sounds like the perfect thing to put me in the autumn mood. But perhaps we could capture some of that glorious color just beginning right now? We may have to wait until the actual leaves start falling (or maybe substitute fake leaves if you can’t wait) to get this particular look:

So pretty, festive, and cheap!

It’s definitely a start but once the season really gets rolling, I’m going to want something more. If you, like me, have a love affair with fall gourds maybe this last one is right up your alley:

Yes, yet another use for those lovely gourds!

Yes, yet another use for those lovely gourds!

Despite the lingering summer weather here, this makes me feel a little more in the right mood for the calendar date. Just one more week until it’s official!

See you on the other side and remember to stay crafty!
