“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.
