It’s pumpkin season!!! Fall is in full swing in my area and Halloween is not far behind. What a great time to get those pumpkins and start carving! Today I’m sharing a really fun, great smelling and easy-peasy way to carve mini pumpkins into adorable candle holders! And how fabulous when the tea lights in the little pumpkins smell like candy corn!!! YUMMY!
Let’s turn off the lights and light some great smelling fall candles!
This post is sponsored by the Yankee Candle Company but the content and opinion expressed here are mine.
Making a real pumpkin candleholder is such an easy and so seasonal diy! I can’t wait to show you how you can do it too!
- Materials: mini pumpkin, sharp knife, YANKEE CANDLE TEA LIGHT Mine are candy corn scented… and yes, they smell just like candy corn!
- Cut around the stem of the pumpkin and pull it out. I save all my stems and glue them on my faux pumpkins to make them look more realistic! Center the tea light on top of the pumpkin and draw around the bottom of the tea light with a pen.
- Cut into the circle to make a hole for the tea light. If you are not going to keep your pumpkins for very long you don’t have to pull out the pumpkin’s guts.
Put the tea light into the carved pumpkin and light! YANKEE CANDLE TEA LIGHTS will burn for 4 to 6 hours and safely extinguish after all the wax has been consumed!
Isn’t this adorable?
And here’s another real pumpkin candleholder using a little orange candle. So cute! These would looks so cute across a mantel or scattered down the center of a table!
I put 3 pumpkins on a little black bench embellished with fall leaves and candy corn.
The real pumpkin candle holders are part of a fall/cute Halloween vignette. I also used a large YANKEE CANDLE in Spiced Pumpkin.
To add a little spooky fun (more cute than spooky, really… and just my speed!) I put a HALLOWEEN SILHOUTTES HAUNTED HOUSE JAR CANDLE SHADE on the large candle giving it a great lit-up-lamp appearance! LOVE the look!
This YANKEE CANDLE SHADE is so well made of beautiful crackle glass. It fit the large and medium jar candles! I’m very impressed!
