Happy start of Labor Day Weekend!
If you've been following along on Instagram you'll have seen my fall mantel. Our new apartment doesn't have a fireplace so I wanted to decorate and take pictures while I could! Is that weird?
I created some new quote art that I printed up and framed. I'm quite happy with how it turned out. You can download it HERE for free.
My absolute FAVORITE thing about fall is buying candles. I like to have my house smelling like cinnamon and pumpkin pie for a solid three months. I always purchase Yankee Candle® as their fragrances tend to be the most realistic. This year, I stocked up on the American Home™ by Yankee Candle® brand at Walmart.
I got some of the same fragrances as past years: "Crisp Apple"(12oz, two wick - $10.93) and "Ginger Pumpkin Pie" (4oz - $4.93) but this year I also opted for "Warm & Happy Home" and "Apple Pumpkin Harvest". They all smell divine and very fall like!
While I was at it, I pulled together a little coffee table vignette. OK, more like a tray vignette. The coffee table is gone to the storage unit!!
If you are always burning candles, too, then inevitably you will be left with a bunch of empty candle jars by the end of the season. Now, you could just throw them out...but wouldn't it be so much more fun to make a candle jar succulent garden?!
Once you've purchased the supplies this will only take 5 minutes to assembly. In my typical cheap skate fashion, I dug some dirt out of my garden and picked up a handful of pea gravel from my backyard. So I only purchased the actual succulents! haha :-)
What You'll Need:
- Empty Candle Jar (the American Home™ by Yankee Candle® brand burns completely clean, just pull the wick out once it's done)
- Pea Gravel
- Potting Soil
How easy is that? They look great placed anywhere - on a window, on a coffee table or a side table.
I've shared my excitement over how new American Home™ by Yankee Candle® brand products at Walmart will fit into our Fall transition, now tell me how you like to get your home ready for fall! Share with me in the comments!
