Pumpkin Candles Revisited

I’m revisiting the pumpkin candles I made last year.  My blog was just starting out when I posted them so I thought I’d reshare them since I will be making them again this year. They’re my knockoff version of Pottery Barn’s pumpkin candles and so easy to make.

 I simply traced a tea light and used a small knife to cut the hole but you could also use a drill (definitely on my wish list)
 These candles are perfect for a fall centerpiece. Plus you can’t beat the price of 3 for $1

This year I’m thinking of adding white pumpkins to the mix. I’m getting anxious for our pumpkin patch trip, it’s one of my favorite yearly activities to do with the kids. So tell me, have you tried making these before? I’d love to see them!
Please visit my party tab to see where I’m linking up to.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’re having a fabulous week!

    I soo want to do this… alas our october budget is non-existent until i can land some new daycare clients!! I am sooo keeping this on hand though… can't hurt to be hopeful lol!

  3. Rachel says

    So adorable! I remember doing something similar for our Thanksgiving table when I was a teenager, but we used apples instead of pumpkins. It looks so festive and pretty!

  4. The Loops says

    This is a great idea. I think white would look great. Or maybe black glitter? Clearly I am anxiously awaiting Halloween!

  5. Randi says

    Very cute! I'll have to try this idea. Do you know how long they last before they get mushy? I like to have pumpkins out for about 2 months…all of October & November!

  6. Amanda @ Little House on the Corner says

    Oh my gosh, these are too cute!! I might have to try this. I think the white ones would look great!

    Adorable – thx for sharing! I wonder if those carvable pumpkins at the Dollar Tree would work as well – and you wouldn't have to worry about them getting mushy.

  9. Erin @ His and Hers says

    These are so cute, and so simple! Love the white pumpkin idea. I might have to try them, especially because, like you said, they'd be so inexpensive! :)

    I've seen these and I love them!!! How long do they last once you cut into them? Super cute… hopping over from I {heart} naptime. Thanks for sharing!!!

  14. Pati @ A Crafty Escape says

    These are amazing… I am definitely adding them to my center pieces. I'd also like to know how long they last.

    I’ve already recreated this thank you but was wondering if the heat from the candle melt the pumpkin since they are plastic and all? just wondering before I light them.
