$10 on the 10th

Yes, it’s $10 on The 10th. This month’s theme is Harvest. So basically anything that is Fall. When Fall rolls around and it finally cools off here in Texas I love a warm mug of what we call Fall Spiced Tea. Y’all can have your pumpkin chai lattes, for me it is spiced tea from October until March!

I always try and keep a few gifties available for friends who need a pick me up, to welcome a new neighbor or an “I was just thinking of you today” gift.

Spiced Tea is perfect for any of those gifts and more.

However, to take the gift up a notch I like to make sure the packaging is super cute.

No plain jar for this girl!

Since it’s Fall, what could be more perfect for a decoration on my jars than Fall leaves?

I found some free clip art of leaves, printed them off and cut them out of card stock.

Step 4:

After your leaves are cut out, lay them out like you want and hot glue them together.

Then, add a button for a little bling!

Step 5:

Add more bling.

I could have stopped with just the leaves and the button.

They are cute just the way they are, however I wanted to add a little more warmth and detail.

Using a metallic gold paint, paint on the leaves details.

Makes such a difference!

Step 6:

Make a tag.

I found these unfinished wooden tags awhile back and bought a package of them.

I use them all the time.

Paint your tag using watered down acrylic paint.

Quickly wipe the paint off with a paper towel.

Now, your tag is ready!spiced tea
