I’m so excited to share with you this DIY decor idea as part of the first blog tour of the year that I’ve joined in on!
This is the start of the Seasonal Simplicity Fall Tours hosted by my sweet friend Krista at The Happy Housie.
These fall DIY and decor lessons will continue each Tuesday for the next several weeks – filled with tons of Fall decor inspiration!
At the bottom of the post other 25 talented decor bloggers are sharing their Fall craft and DIY ideas too to help you decorate your homes for Fall.
If you’re new to Setting for Four I’d love for you to hop over to my about me section where you can learn about my background as a proud military wife and how I moved from an exciting career as an Research and Development Microbiologist working for Fortune 500 companies to a full time Interior Decorator and Blogger with my own business!
Being my own boss is just amazing and even though my path to this new career of mine was a REAL personal challenge and struggle (read all about that here!) I’m so glad that it led me to where I am today as a full time influencer and Interior Decorator!
…and if you need some decor advice I offer online decorating services and e-design where we can work together through emails to solve a paint color problem or design a complete room!
My most popular service is the one question design advice….where I’ll answer one question you have on paint color, room layout and more to get that nagging problem solved! Check out my design services here!
I love decorating my home for fall with the sights and sounds of Autumn!
I love walks in the woods with my family and the scent of pine in the forests that surround our home! The scent of falling leaves mixed with forest pine is just so majical!
This pine fragrance candle is so easy to make for Fall and to carry on through to Winter and the Christmas holiday.
Decor idea: Make up two or three of these candles and line them down the center of a table. Add a vase of fall leaves, fresh pine and fall blooms such as hydrangeas, sunflowers or dahlias and you have a gorgeous fall centerpiece for your dining table!
Holiday prep idea: Make a few up for Christmas stocking stuffers, teacher gifts and hostess gifts to have on hand!!
DIY Forest Pine Candle In A Jar
Soy wax flakes (find them HERE)
Glass jar with lid
Gold Spray paint – ( this is my Hands Down FAVORITE gold spray paint!)
Hot glue gun and hot glue
Step one: Spray paint lid of glass jar with one or two coats of gold spray paint. Let dry between each coat. I’m in love with this spray paint line and this gold color – it’s high quality and sprays on like a dream! I can’t wait to try out their silver color too!
Step two: Glue a wick to the center bottom of the jar.
Step three: melt soy wax flakes in a large microwave-safe bowl for a minute or 2. 4 cups of wax will fill fit one mid-size and one small jar. You can always melt more if needed. I use a large pyrex measuring cup for pouring. (Use the double boiler method instead of the microwave to melt the wax if you like. Stir every 30 seconds until wax is completely melted.)
Step four: stir in about 15 drops of fragrance oil into melted wax or more until scented to the way you like it.
Step five: pour wax slowly into jar and let the candle sit for several hours or overnight until solid. Once the candle is solid, trim wick to ¼ inch. Once candle has completely cooled add lid.
(You can also add a gift tag to it at this point! Printable Thankful Tags)
Isn’t it pretty? I just love the shimmery, gold glam lid!
I’m displaying my new pretty candle on this gold tray on my kitchen island with a bouquet of pine, cedar and some of my chartreuse potato vine leaves! It’s such a gorgeous natural way to decorate and the pine scent is amazing!
