The weather outside here in MN sure doesn't feel like Fall... it feels like winter. *Sigh* The weather in this state is so unpredictable! The snow has been flying and its 35 degrees outside but I'm not letting it stamp out my fall vibes! It's not winter yet, Minnesota! I finished these pumpkin jar covers and they are lighting up the inside of the house. If I have the shades pulled- I can keep myself convinced that it's NOT snowing in October.
These cuties are quick and easy to work up. I plan on using them as tea light holders so not only do they add some cute fall feels to the house- they can provide some good smells too! Pumpkin spice, anyone? And they are versatile! If you omit the leaf and stem and switch the color up- you can use them for everyday decor too!
