DIY Scented Wax

I found these little perks a few weeks back and since then I have been saving up my little trays and telling all my friends to save the candles when they get down to the part where you burn yourself trying to light it...

There are two ways you can save money on candles. Either way is fairly easy.

When reusing old wax that have no scent left, and putting oil in them. Saving time and money because you can just keep re-using it i the warming tray. 

Easy AND Cheap!

You can get the oil anywhere. I purchased mine at a Walmart for about $1 each. (I got different smells to last the whole fall & winter) These bottles will last you probably about 5 years, literally. You only need a few drops of oil to make the scent come to life.

The second way is to reuse candles. Melt the candle on a warming tray and pour it into the saved wax trays. You can get a warming tray at Hobby Lobby for $5. After adding the melted wax to the trays place it in the freezer for a while to harden, then use like you would new wax!

Halloween Toilet Paper Rolls

What you'll need;

toilet paper rolls
black cup cake baking cups
googly eyes
Orange, white and black construction paper

First your going to measure the amount of paper you need to fit around the toilet paper rolls & cut them. You'll do this with all of your papers. White, orange, and black since we are making three different things. 

You can either cut the toilet paper roll in half, then glue the paper onto the toilet paper roll. Or leave the toilet paper roll whole, then glue the paper on, then cut them in half (or leave them whole!)

You'll want to use your black construction paper to make the faces. If your making a lot like me, I folded the paper & drew on them then cut them out. I made the ghosts' eyes and mouth & pumpkins' eyes, nose and mouth. 

For the bats the only thing I did was used the black baking cup (folding it in half) for the wings. I did also let Josiah cut out some mouths for the bats, using his scissors and white construction paper. 

Set all the eyes, noses, and mouths in the middle of the table and let the kids decorate them !

& there you have it! It kept the kids busy for a little while and Josiah also got creative and made others, like the "pumpkin bat" in the back of this picture!!

Sunday Social

It's so close to fall! I just wish the weather would act like it sometimes here in Virginia! 

Sunday Social

1. What is your favorite part of Fall?

Decorating now! Apple & pumpkin scents! I hate eating them but the scent is so soothing!!!! 

2. Do you have anything special planned for Fall?

I have tried to take off all the days I needed to this time for fall festivals. Not saying that I will get every request since they all fall on a Saturday!! whomp whomp!  But I DEFINITELY plan on going to MOST of the festivals and activities that I can! I can't wait to do smores..hay rides and pumpkin patches!!! 

I am also looking forward to watching my Favorite TV shows!!! Check out my post HERE

3. What is Fall like in your area?

Virginia is the only place I know it can be 100 degrees one day and snow the next!! Fall is hurricane season until November, really. but September is when most of them happen. It's going to start getting around the 70's. Right now the weather is looking like this... 

4. What is your favorite Football team to cheer for(college or professional)?

If any I'd have to choose the Saints. I'm not too much of a football fan ;)

5. Do you decorate for Fall? Show us pics!!!

I have!! And I wrote a post on how to do this cute Jute Vase

I haven't finish my entry way table but it's getting closer!!!
