What’s Your Favorite Way to Decorate Pumpkins?

StephanieIt seems like every time I go to the grocery store, the small mound of tiny tangerine pumpkins exponentially grows into a tower like form, with a few casualties rolling into the parking lot! Ever since I was little, my mom would bring home a miniature pumpkin from the grocery store for me to decorate.

Although I’m not sure where the time went, Halloween is a few weeks away and my kitchen table already has a few pumpkins on it. In the past, I’ve painted and carved pumpkins. This year it is pumpkin candleholders.


Pumpkin Candleholders:


• Permanent marker
• Craft knife
• Grapefruit knife
• Hot glue gun (optional)


• 4 dinner candles (substitute tealight candles for a different look)
• 4 miniature pumpkins
