‘Gourd’eous candle holders

To make your own you will need:

  • A variety of little pumpkins and gourds
  • a drill
  • a spade drill bit the diameter of a tea light
  • tea lights
  • a large sharp knife
  • Gently cut a piece off the bottom of the gourd so that it will sit flat on the table. This is to stabilize and to make sure that the candle holder won’t wobble or tip over when it is lit
  • Next, cut off the top of the gourd where you will want to drill the hole for the candle
  • Once you have cut off the top or stem, you can use the drill to create the whole for the tea light to go. Make sure to only drill the hole deep enough for the tea light to sit in
  • And there you have it: a beautiful addition to your fall decor!  These would look great on a tray on your coffee table, or scattered around the dinner table, or placed on the kitchen counter to keep you company while you cook!
