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.
Pumpkin Tea Lights
 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
Pumpkin Tea Lights
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!


  1. Great idea! I love the look of adding the little tea lights to the center. You always make such great things here. I would love to have you share this @ Show & Share!

    What a fabulous idea.. Totally loved this.. I'm now following you.. and hope you come visit me at Colours Dekor.. :-)

  3. Cute/easy idea. Now I am getting excited for the pumpkin patch. These would look great with white pumpkins.

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

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

  7. Brilliant! I love this idea! I would love it if you linked this up at my linky party, Creative Me Monday. It's open Monday-Sat. Here's the link:


    If you'd add my party to your list that would be great too!

    Hope to see you there!


  8. 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!

  9. 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!

  10. thank you for reposting–what a beautiful, smart project! i will definitely be incorporating this diy for fall decor :)

  12. These are so cute! I just made similar ones out of apples (http://www.annehogan.net/blog/2011/09/fake-apple-candles/). I think I'll make some pumpkins and mix them in with my apples. :)

  15. 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.

  16. Erin @ His and Hers says:

  50. 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.
