WE ARE OFFICIALLY IN THE LAST WEEK OF AUGUST!! YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?
ITS ALMOST FALL, Y’ALL!
I am so excited. Fall is my favorite season and basically the introduction to my favorite time of year! Living in Florida, I don’t really get to see the seasons change like I did living elsewhere, but it does cool down (slightly) which makes outdoor activities far more enjoyable. Plus, ’tis the season of pumpkin! I actually don’t like the flavor or pumpkin spice (sue me), but I looovvveee the smell of anything pumpkin/cinnamon/fall-like. Bath and Body works has already released their fall line of candles, and I am just waiting for the 2 for $22 sale to stock up on Pumpkin Pecan Waffle.
In the meantime, I made my own! What can I say, I just couldn’t wait! This craft was actually inspired by another mason jar craft I will be doing with my coworkers later this week (a post to come, so stay tuned)!
DIY (easy) Pumpkin Spice Mason Jar Candle
What you’ll need:
- Mason Jar
- Paint (optional)
- Pumpkin Spice Coffee Grounds of Beans
- Tealight Candle
- Jar Embellishments of your choice!
Paint your Jar and let dry overnight (optional)
I chose to spray paint my jar with a gold/copper toned paint. I love this color for fall, and it looks really nice while the candle is lit. Also, spray painting is just wayyy easier than brush painting overall! You definitely don’t have to paint the jar if you don’t want to, I just wanted to add a pop of color!
Add Jar Embellishments
Once your painted jar is dry, its time to add embellishments. I chose twine and flowers for mine. For the flowers, I got a small fall artificial bouquet from Hobby Lobby and snipped off the buds. Super easy! I tied the twine around the top of the jar in a bow for a rustic look.
Add Coffee Bean/Grounds and Tea Light Candle
Once your jar is decorated, fill the jar 1/3-1/2 full of pumpkin spice coffee grounds of beans. Then, place a tea light candle on top.
When the tea light candle is lit, the heat will produce the pumpkin spice aromatics!
Try it and let me know what you think! Do you have any fall craft suggestions? I would love to hear them. I am feeling creative!
Until next time,
