“Yes”! Autumn is right around the corner and I am dreaming of days of autumn in the park. Of course, we have a park like setting in our own backyard, so I really don’t have to go too far.
Fall is my favorite season. If you are a long time friend and follower of mine, you definitely know that about me. All my senses and creativity come to life that season.

My new Yankee Candle® scent Autumn in the Park™ set the tone. Although a tad early, that’s OK!
I can tell when the long days of summer start to come to end. The streams of sunshine pouring through the windows start shifting direction in our home. The most beautiful season is around the corner and it truly is the year’s last loveliest smile.
When I lit my Yankee Candle® scent Autumn in the Park™ my inner crafty self felt it was time for my first fall craft of the season. The scent of fresh peeled apple and the crispness of fallen leaves–it definitely smells like fall. The dash of lemon zest and hint of pumpkin captures a gorgeous autumn afternoon walk . Ok, so I skipped the walk and used a paint brush instead. That’s exercise right? Good for toning the arms:)
My Dollar tree wine glasses turned pumpkin/ votive candles serve a multipurpose.
Not for sipping vino,but for displaying candles and cute fall decor.
This here paint technique of Rit dye and Gesso I have shared with you before.
These are strictly for decorative purpose.
I can assure you this upcoming fall season I will share with you lots of Pumpkins, decor, recipes and more.
I would also love for one of my friends and readers here to enjoy this Autumn in the Park™ Yankee candle scent. In my next newsletter, I will give you all a chance to enter my gift giveaway for a 22 oz. tumbler.
For more instructions on how I created these pumpkin wine glasses you can check out my Rit dye Gesso pumpkin. I used the same exact technique. One extra step that I added was the craft paint below with a small artist brush. Please be sure your project is completely dry before adding this last touch.
If you are not a regular here, I sure would love to see you back again.
Pin it and make them later.
Please stick around and browse my All things Fall gallery of ideas.
and if you enjoy Dollar tree crafts, there are plenty more where that came from.
I am new to your blog and it has instantly become my favorite! Love love love your ideas!!! You’ve already given me a whirlwind of ideas for an upcoming 40th BD party! From one Debbie to another…THANK YOU!
Awesome Debby! Thank you so much. It’s a pleasure to have you here.
Lovely Deb! I too adore the fall…it’s when I am truly alive!
It’s funny how it does that! Love it, can’t wait for it to get here.
I’m a huge fan of both Yankee candle and that wonderful fall season. LOVE those wine glasses,Debbie. So creative, and it’s the perfect way to display that candle.
Thank you Judy!
I love fall and one of my favorite things are the scents. Apples, cinnamon, leaves on a cool afternoon. Can’t wait! Definitely trying this candle too.
You will love it Ann!

This is so pretty, Debbie! And seeing that photo of your beautiful backyard turns my thoughts to fall, too!
Thanks Linda! I am super excited for it to get here.
Well, that is simply lovely! I was just looking at my couch table in the family room thinking, what should I do for fall? Bingo.
Perfect! So happy. You will enjoy these little cuties.
How did I miss these pumpkin glasses! Adorable Debbie! That new candle fraqrance sounds wonderful! Will definitely look for it, although I am not quite ready for summer to end. Psst, I am sharing your picnic basket redo on my FB page this afternoon.
I LLLLLOOOOOVVVVEEE fall, as it is my favorite time of the year!!! Can’t wait to bring out all of my fall “stuff!!!”
I know me too! My 12 bins are calling my name LOL!
I just discovered your blog yesterday and absolutely fell in love! This post got me so excited about fall! I’m headed to Dollar Tree today to get my craft on! Have a lovely day!
Thanks Michelle and welcome! So happy to have you here.
I don’t know how I missed this project of yours Debbie! They are so darn cute. I’m so ready for Fall. I don’t like hot weather with humidity, and we’ve had some real hotties this Summer; reminds me of the two years I lived in Alabama. Keep on crafting and having fun. I always look forward to your blog.
Thank you sweet Peggy! It’s been a hot summer here too in South Carolina.
I followed the steps and made the pumpkin wine glasses. They were fine for about a month.
I woke up the other morning and for some reason, rit dye was dripping off the glasses!
Any idea what could have caused this?
That is strange Lindsay. The only thing I can think of is, if they were in the sunlight or heat? Mine are on our coffee table and I have no dripping issue. That is the only thing I can come up with. Sorry that happened:(
