Fall is synonymous with pumpkin spice, especially because of the wildly popular pumpkin spice lattes served in cafes all around the nation. The pumpkin spice mix is a combination of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and ginger and is used in both savory and sweet recipes. It is a popular flavoring in pies and coffee, on nuts and popcorn, in pasta dishes and more. But, have you considered using it to create crafts that can keep the fall fragrance in the air throughout the season?
