Happy Friday everyone ! It’s fall favorites and today it the scents of the holiday. With homemade candles and crockpot Potpourri .
Fall Potpourri (Crockpot)
- orange slices
- cinnamon sticks
- whole cloves
- 2 spring rosemary
Fill a small crockpot 3/4 full of water. Add oranges, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and rosemary. Set on high for 3 to 4 hours uncovered for potpourri to become heated and aroma develop.
Pumpkin Spice Candle
- 2 cups of soy wax (mine from Hobby Lobby)
- 1 orange crayon (you can get cheap crayons at your local dollar store)
- 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice seasoning
- ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 candlewick
- pencil ,glue dot (hold wick)
- glass Mason jar
Start by heating the soy wax flakes on low heat. Directly on the stove top works well, just be sure use a non-stick pot. Stir and Add orange crayon in pieces (make sure you peel off wrapper) and stir till melted. Add your spice mixture and stir. If you want a darker color add more crayons. Then take a clean jar and place a glue dot on bottom of wick and place in the middle. Then before adding wax – attach wick to pencil with glue dot to keep in place – pour in hot wax and let set up. Then remove pencil when hard and cut wick to size.
Pumpkin Candles for your table :
The process is simple: hollow out a mini pumpkin, melt some candle wax, and pour inside. And it has a side benefit: pumpkin seeds! We don’t usually eat these little pumpkins; they get used as decorations then tossed out with the Thanksgiving compost.
