DIY::halloween sparkly pumpkin candle holders

❥ creating large and small candle holders out of either real or fake pumpkins.

Supplies::  Styrofoam Pumpkin, Candle Drill, Hole, Saw Attachment for drill, Craft-Glue, Glitter

Instructions:: Determine the width of the candle and make sure the hole saw is just slightly larger. Remove the stem and locate the center on top of the pumpkin. With the pumpkin firmly secure, center the hole cutting attachment above the pumpkin and slowly drill out the center. It may help to have someone hold the pumpkin steady while you drill.Once center is cut, you’ll need to carve out the foam with a knife. Continue the process until you have desired depth.Once the hole is cut, coat entire pumpkin in craft glue. Generously cover with colored glitter and let dry.

Once glitter is dry and to prevent glitter from flaking off, spray with a bit of hairspray to set.Use non-drip candles (typically the wide candles don’t) or if you’re using tea-lights, opt for ones that have a plastic or metal cup so that wax doesn’t get into pumpkin. Place candle inside and light!
