Fall. A Season of Change.
When the carefree days of summer slowly blend into the winds and whispers of falling leaves.
When children head back to school and moms remind them to grab a jacket because there’s a chill in the air.
When the newly hatched chicks of summer leave the nest…leap into the unknown with the winds of autumn catching them and soaring them into a new world.
When children caught up in the hazy place between childhood and adulthood, pack up cars with belongings and books and fill their minds with the memories of home.
The words of Fall hold adventures and warmth and crispness and scents that no matter how far from home we travel, always bring us back to the hearths of comfort and familiarity in our minds.
Here’s how you can make your own Stenciled Fall Jar to capture all that reminds you of Fall.
jar (the color you choose will be your text color)
sticker letters in different sizes and fonts
painters or masking tape
spray paint in the color you want for your jar
Exact-o knife (to remove stickers)
Sharpie or Paint Pen to touch up letters
My Autumn Jar will remind me everyday of all of the seasonal memories tucked away in my heart. Of bonfires and leaf raking. Of backpacks and hayrides. Of pumpkin patches and a Power Ranger carrying a bucket full of candy and a chocolate smeared face under a mask.
My chick may be leaving my nest…but he will always be nestled in my heart.
