Let’s Get to Those Great Finds!
This bundt cake recipe is completely allergy free, and the cinnamon glaze is sugar free! Tasty cake perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack, or dessert! Get the recipe for this Gluten Free Apple Butter Bundt Cake from Strength and Sunshine right here.
I have some weird and funny to admit, I love the idea and sugar of sugar scrubs, but I hate using them! Something about that texture, though I do like when I go get my nails done, and the technician uses it. So weird, haha! Anywho, for my weird love of sugar scrubs, here is a fall inspired one perfect for gift giving or pampering yourself with. Be careful! Cinnamon can cause an allergic reaction, so test a small part of your skin first. Get the recipe for this Spiced Apple Cider Sugar Scrub from A Cultivated Nest here!
This is a super easy, super cute little DIY perfect for fall gifting or to a teacher, or as an adorable decor piece for your home! Imagine a small one grouped with a larger one, or a variety of apple colors. Want to crochet the leaves instead of making out of paper? I have a free crochet pattern on my EyeLoveKnots blog for that – Basic Leaf Pattern 2 Ways. Find the tutorial to DIY Apple Jars from The 36th Avenue right here.
If you are in need of some apple for a tiered tray or decorative fruit bowl, Adelebythebay has some sewn fabric apples for only $3 each – what a steal! Pick your apple/s right here.
New this week on my EyeLoveKnots blog is 20 Free Apple Crochet Patterns. These items are perfect for gifting and decorating with.
This is a basic tutorial of how they were created, not necessary a DIY, but there are links included for the dies, and if you don’t have a die cutting machine (like me), you could create a template of your own for the pieces. Aside from pincushions, these would also make cute ornaments. Check out the basic tutorial on these Apple Core Pincushions from Sizzix Blog.
