Miniature Pumpkin Candle Holders

Posted on | October 11, 2010 | No Comments

Decorating for Halloween, easily!
 
I saw miniture pumpkins used as candleholders and thought they looked so cute & festive…thought I’d share.
 
All you need is:
 
Assorted gourds, carnival squash, or miniature pumpkins
Pumpkin carving tools (a lid-cutter saw)
Sharp knife
Taper and votive candles

What to Do
1. Insert the knife into the center of the gourd near the stem. Be careful, as gourds are very hard. Wedge the knife back and forth a little until you have a slit of about an inch. Remove the knife.

2. Insert lid-cutter saw and gently and patiently saw — with an up-and-down sawing motion, (don’t try to slice) — a circle in the center of the gourd. Don’t push too hard or the saw can break. If this happens, try to finish the work with a grapefruit knife or apple corer. When the ends of the circle meet, remove the section of the gourd.

3. Drizzle a few drops of candle wax in the hole and insert a taper or votive candle.
