How to Pumpkin Spice Your Home

Pumpkin Spice is all the rage this time of year. Besides ordering Pumpkin Spice coffees (or making them at home) you can Pumpkin Spice up your life in many different ways — enjoying fall to its fullest.

Make your own Pumpkin Spice to add to just about anything by mixing cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves all ground and mixed together. Store in a small container, and decorate the label with your very own Pumpkin Spice artwork. Add this to cookies, pancakes, muffins. Sprinkle on top of whipped cream or on oatmeal. And try it on roasted squash for a savory sweet treat!

Love the smell of pumpkin pie baking? You can have that smell all the time with a pumpkin spice candle, incense sticks or room freshener spray. You can also simply simmer cinnamon sticks on your stove in water for a while and your house will smell delicious.

Create a Pumpkin Spice centerpiece for your hearth or dining table by using a pumpkin hollowed out as your bowl to start. Add dried grasses, cattails, and eucalyptus of varying heights as the “spice”. Or, make mini versions of this using the tiny orange pumpkins you might find at the store.

Switch out your pajamas this time of year for ones that are in a deep orange earth tone! Yes, you can Pumpkin Spice yourself too. Add a cozy Pumpkin Spice throw to your sofa or bed and enjoy Pumpkin Spice feelings all season long.
