s'mores ideas

Fall, for some reason, is always busy for our family. Not so much with responsibilities or things that need to be done (though, there are always some of those), but more with cookouts, get-togethers with other families, Fall sports, etc. In short, fall is fun, and, for these reasons, is probably my favorite season.

When Glade debuted their new Limited Edition Scents Pumpkin Pit Stop™ and Hit the Road™, I couldn’t wait to try them out. It’s well-known about me that I love candles, and seasonal fragrances are always at the top of my list.

If I could tell you just one thing about Pumpkin Pit Stop™, it would be this: the moment I experienced it, all of my favorite fall memories came to mind. The scent helped evoke memories of bonfires, cozy sweaters, apple-picking, and all the other wonderful memories I associate with this time of year. The new Glade® Limited Edition Fall Collection scents inspire something else as well…


This s’mores bar was inspired by Glade® fall scents, and, to me, is the epitome of all that I love about fall.

I wanted to add a touch of fall color, so I created the garlands and used the eraser end of a pencil to stamp craft paint around the edges of paper plates. I set out a variety of s’mores toppings, including milk chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter filled cups, filled chocolates, and both plain and coconut marshmallows.

I even created this fun printable for you all to use for your own s’mores get together. Click to download the “let’s roast mallows & party s’more” printable file.

I found the new Glade® Limited Edition Fall Collection scents at Kroger; next time you’re there, be sure to check them out (though I promise it’ll be hard not to throw a couple in your cart)!

Time with friends and a yummy treat is what this season is all about.

diy crepe paper garland {a tutorial}

crepe paper garland 1

Crepe paper and I are becoming fast friends. From my crepe paper backdrop to my post on 25 crepe paper crafts, I’m realizing how versatile and fun crepe paper can be. And, of course, the addition of fringe is just icing on the cake.

-Crepe Paper Roll (isn’t this polka dot one I found adorable?!)
-Sewing Machine (or double-sided tape-I won’t tell)
– Foam Letters

Step 1: Take your crepe paper, and cut 4-5 lengths that are 6′ long. I’m choosing to make a 6′ garland, but obviously you can make this garland as long or short as you’d like.

Step 2: Stack your crepe paper lengths on top of each other, and, using your sewing machine, sew down the length of your strips (I used a 1/4″ seam allowance).

Step 3: When you’re done, you’ll have this.

Step 4: Using your scissors, carefully cut slits in your sewn crepe paper (being careful not to snip through your stitches!) Separate your strips of crepe paper to make your garland fuller and add some dimension.

Step 5: Add any embellishments (I used foam letters to spell out “SHINE”, hang your garland, and admire…

Curious about the other two garlands? The top one is just different sizes of kraft paper sewn together, and the bottom is my glitter and watercolor confetti garland. So easy!
