As the end of the month approaches, the clocks go back and the darker evenings close in, I am becoming obsessed with burning candles around my home (even during the day, which makes a dreary, rainy day that much cosier). These mini pumpkin tea light holders could not be more seasonal, would make a great decoration for halloween parties and they are so simple to make. They will last about two weeks before they start to decay. This is going to be the briefest of posts as we’re into the sixth day of no internet here so I’m tethering from my phone and there’s barely any 3G! Grrrr!
Anyhoo, here’s how I did it…
You will need:
Mini pumpkins (they are available from supermarkets but you can find a much better range at local markets or florists)
Tea light candles
All ready for an Autumnal candle-lit evening at home. I love this little jar lined with old pics of my mum, granny and uncle. The Physalis (or I’ve always known them as Chinese Lanterns) always makes me think of October and Halloween and looks so striking when displayed at home.
Happy Autumn evenings.
