How to make Mini Pumpkin Candle Holders

  • Buy some miniature pumpkins at your local supermarket or grocer
  • Buy some tea light, or short candles – one for each mini-pumpkin
  • Place the tea light or short candle over the top of the pumpkin and trace around it with a pen or marker
  • Carefully cut out this area of pumpkin so that the candle will sit snugly in the hole

 

How to display your mini pumpkin candle Holders

  • Make floating mini pumpkin candles, and place them in a large bowl of water on your dining table,
  • Make 3 or 5 floating mini pumpkin candles and place each in its own small bowl of water, arranged on the table
  • Place the mini pumpkin candle holders in your candelabra if you have a floor Candelabra or fireplace candelabra
  • Simply arrange the mini pumpkin candle holders on a place mat in the center of your table

Halloween Pumpkins don’t all have to be scary!

Elegant pumpkin Candelabra for Halloween

I came across this image of a Candelabra on a Pumpkin

it’s an actual sculpture, not  real pumpkin but it gave me an idea….

How to make a Halloween Pumpkin Candelabra

  1. Find a picture of a silhouette of a Candelabra  (click here for an idea of what I mean)
  2. Find a pumpkin of the right size – say a little taller than the image you’ve got
  3. Hold the piece of paper against the pumpkin and use a hard or sharp implement to trace along the outline of the Candelabra silhouette – press hard enough so you mark the pumpkins skin
  4. Remove the paper and you will see the outline you have traced
  5. Now carve out the silhouette so it becomes an embossed shape on the pumpkin
  6. For best effect choose a pumpkin that has a different color skin to the insides of the pumpkin, so your carving really stands out

OR for a simpler project

You could just paint or glue  your Candelabra silhouette onto the pumpkin!
