I am constantly bored with my home decor. I have endless stacks of throw pillows and blankets to try and create the illusion of difference.
That’s why the holidays are so great; it’s a perfect time to spruce up the home with simple, festive projects that don’t break the bank.
In this DIY, I’m using mini-pumpkins leftover from my Halloween decorations and transitioning them into candles that can be used for your Thanksgiving festivities.
What you need:
- assorted glitter (make sure it says non-flammable)
- votive candles
- plain ole school glue or Mod Podge (I used Elmer’s – also non-flammable)
- knife/ pumpkin saw from carving kits
- Draw circle on top of pumpkin the same size as votive. Carve out the circle just as you would a normal pumpkin.
- Scoop out the seeds. I used just a kitchen spoon, because you need something small enough to get in the nooks and crannies of the little pumpkin.
- Apply glue directly to the pumpkin. Sprinkle on desired glitter. *I did this in a number of rounds, letting patches dry, then seeing where I needed to fill in.
- Let dry overnight.
- Place votive candle in the center. Enjoy!
