Tee-se-itse TUESDAY! Do-it-yourself Autumn Candle Holder

I came across this very cute and easy diy! Perfect for Tee-se-itse TUESDAY! I found it at Spark & Chemistry.

All you’ll need are artificial fall leaves, a mason jar, mod podge and a paint brush/sponge.


You just mod podge the leaves onto the jar. You could probably use clear spray glue for a quicker application.


You can tie raffia, twine or burlap to the top and make a bow.


Such an easy tee-se-itse (do-it-yourself) Autumn Candle Holder.

Tee Se-itse (Do-it-yourself in finnish) TUESDAY

I came across this easy and convenient diy. If your family is like mine, we can never find matches. I love this idea of placing wooden matches in a mason jar and placing sand paper on the top. It will look so cute on a mantel. And, it’s so convenient.

Another cute Tee-se-itse (do-it-yourself) project is to create your own art. But you don’t need to buy an expensive stretched canvas. Just buy a roll of canvas, paint it with colors that coordinate with your room (or add a pop of color) and hang. So artsy!


Pumpkin Tea Lights That Last More Than One Season!

I recently spotted these adorable pumpkin tea light candles at elizadomestica.com.

Being a bit of a frugal crafty myself, I prefer to make things that will last. So I took a trip to my local AC Moore craft store. I found four miniature fake pumpkins.


I first cut off the brown stems with an exacto knife.


Then I outlined the tea lights with a pencil.


Using my exacto knife again, I carefully cut out the circle and scraped out the material to match the depth of the tea light.


Then I inserted the tea lights. You want it to be a little bit of a tight squeeze, that way the white interior of the pumpkin won’t show. If some does show through, just use a yellow sharpie to touch up the area.


And voila! My very own mini pumpkin tea lights that will last more than one season!


Next time I’m going to try these apple candles, only with artificial ones! Forever the frugal crafter!
