Quick and Easy Pumpkin Candles

A few weeks back, in my Friday Finds, I posted about pumpkin lanterns. These small pumpkin candle/lanterns would be great for any Thanksgiving table. I finally had a chance to make these cute little candles and I thought I’d share with you how it turned out.

First I cut the tops off of a few tiny pumpkins and hollowed them out.

Then I melted some bee’s wax in my hacked together double boiler.

I then placed a wick inside each pumpkin.

and filled them with wax.

Once they cooled and the wax had solidified I trimmed the wicks and they were ready to light.

What are you planning for your thanksgiving table?
