Mini Pumpkin Candle Holder

If you have visited a local pumpkin patch or even the grocery store as of late you may have noticed these super cute mini pumpkins. They are super cute and can easily be used to add a bit of decor to your home. One super cute idea is to turn these mini pumpkins into a candle of sorts. 

It is easy to make mini pumpkin candles. You just simply traced a tea light and used a small knife to cut the hole but you could also use a drill

Press the point of the drill bit into the center of the stem of the pumpkin, and slowly start drilling. The drill will have a bit of trouble right where the stem meets the pumpkin. Keep gentle pressure on the drill while it works through the base of the stem, but don’t push too hard because as soon as the drill bit gets into the pumpkin itself it will start to move really quickly and easily.
Drill about a 1/2″ to 3/4″ into the pumpkin, but be careful not to go all the way through!
Scoop out most of the seeds and flesh from inside the pumpkin, and wipe away any gunk on the outside. If you need your pumpkin to last as long as it possibly can, rub some vaseline on all of the exposed flesh (the entire inside, and the part you drilled through).
