Online Scent Description: “As sweet as the trip to the local apple orchard each year, a delicious fall blend of mulled cider, warm caramel and sweet cinnamon.”
Sweet fall bliss take me away! Somebody pinch me I must be dreaming. Where has this fragrance been all my life?? My nose cannot get enough of the sweet juicy apples, warm dark caramel and the deepness of the spices from the mulled cider.
Around this time of year cider scents are one of my favorites so for this to pass under my radar for so long baffles me. This is such an addictive scent and I must get a vast amount of it before fall comes to an end. I cannot give this scent enough credit on how good it really is so you have to give it a try if you haven’t already
Don’t you think these adorable shapes can pass off as scarecrows? I thought they were the perfect shape for this post.
When vendors create such beautifully handcrafted tarts how do they expect us to melt them? The intricate details on the swirl of the brim of Ann’s hat and the pipping of her hair is on point and incredible which made it even harder not to hoard this melt.
I made the mistake of melting a whole Ann/Scarecrow when in my home a full one is definitely not needed. The scent throw on this little melt was fantastic! If you have a smaller home like me you could easily get away with cutting this melt in half unless you like being punched in the nose with sweet delicious fall goodness.. if you do..by all means, treat yourself!
Does this classify as a fall melt..? Not really? Well let me explain my reasoning’s. This was a new clamshell at my local Wal-Mart that I picked up when looking for fall fragrances and when I was testing it I began thinking of scarecrows and of my scarecrow wind chime. Usually scarecrows come to mind with a bright sunflower tucked into the brim of their straw hats so what better melt than to include this one?
This reminds me of a floral perfume type scent. It is rather beautiful and one I would recommend picking up and giving a try if you like bright flower fragrances.
Grab the scissors, Grab the Glue!
The scarecrow you see above is a Pinterest craft that I completed about a year ago. Being short on space from living in a one bedroom apartment you have to get creative with your decorations. If you flip our fall fellow around once the autumn weather waves goodbye, you are now ready for the chilly, frosty winter with your very own frosty the snowman!
This craft was so much fun and very easy as long as you have the tools to assemble the wooden boards together. The wooden planks are screwed together with screws and I just used acrylic paint. Both flowers I found at Hobby Lobby and removed the wire stems with pliers before attaching them with a hot glut gun. Of course if you put this outside you would need to weather proof it with a good sealer.
A simple yet fun addition to your porch for any season!
Have you made any fun fall crafts recently? Let me know!
