Sunny Autumn Morning + Apple Candleholder D.I.Y.

Saule Troboje

It was windy and the sky was sprinkling fine water droplets, we couldn't believe, that Autumn is going hand in hand with the calendar... By the time we gathered all together, sky went clear and the sun came out just for a perfect day in the country side. We were meeting for a casual, but not that frequent Etsy Lithuania team meeting at a gorgeous house surrounded by forest not too far from Molėtai town.
Our hostess Jurga harvested pumpkins, leafy greens for a soup and some freshly picked mushrooms from the forest near by. Naturally it all became a part of arrangements, including snacks, coffee mugs and of course our handcrafted items. While chatting, laughing, sipping coffee, talking some important stuff we managed to take some vibrant seasonal pictures and tried a simple D.I.Y ideal for setting an Autumn inspired table.

Fresh apple candle holders are great idea to decorate fall or thanksgiving table, looks cute and so easy to make!
All you need is apples, vegetable peeler and candles.
Place apples on flat surface and measure diameter of your candle.
Cut out the shape of the candle and dig out the apple so that the candle will fit nicely inside. You can brush some lemon juice on the apple (especially the edges)to help prevent it from going brown.
Set it on your festive table, lit up and enjoy! (follow c
andle burning instructions and fire safety as well...)

DIY time: magic stick!

If you are a parent and have a daughter, most probably at one point of your life you'll hear that she wants to be a princess or fairy. Or even better... she wants a magic wand, so that she could wave it and... have all the sweets of the world, travel to one place to another within a minute, watch movies all day long, do not attend nursery etc. etc. etc... 😊

When the day comes, find some time, some left over fabric, a chop stick, beads, glue, invite your fairy-to be to join and lets make a unique magic stick!

You will need:

Start with a piece of paper to draw (print) the desired form (e.g. a star, a heart, a lotus, etc.).

Cut the shape out of the fabric you have

You will need 2 pcs. of the fabric

Sew or glue the 2 pieces together, leaving a hole at the bottom

You can sew the good side up, unless you want it to look super neat.

Put some polly fill or cotton through the hole at the bottom

The result should look something like this

Prepare different ribbons, strings, beads and bells

Put all the details of the decoration into one and tie it together

Insert into the fabric part

Time for a stick - if you do not have a stick that fits, use a chop stick. Insert the stick into the fabric part

Finish with hot glue gun (carefully - very hot!)
Volee! Your last minute gift is ready

Time for the stars!
