DIY Apple Pie Spice

Happy Fall! Last month I made this fun “W” door hanger for September. I wanted something that looked rustic but nothing too Fall-ish Smile  If anyone is curious, I used this tutorial from Two Twenty One – and it was really easy, I just wrapped a cardboard letter with some jute twine!


They say that this is the last week of triple digits here in Phoenix…I am not so sure I believe it but I am hopeful! It was in the 80’s this morning during my run so that could be a good sign SmileApplePieSpice1

So now that it’s officially Fall, I have a fun Autumn recipe for you guys! Most of you know I love a little DIY in my kitchen (hello yummy taco seasoning) so this one is a must make for me! This apple pie spice is super simple to whip up and is much cheaper than buying the pre-made spice blend from the store.


Apple pie is probably my favorite of all pies – I pretty much always pass on pumpkin…I know, I know…weird. I like anything reminiscent of those apple pie flavors so this apple pie spice comes in handy in my kitchen more than a few times during the season!


This might be a little weird, but I loved mixing up all these spices – it just smelled like fall!

      Thank you Sally! It was easier than you think :) I just wish they made fabric flower tutorials for non-crafty people – most of them were a little over my head so I made up my own way to do it lol
