Set on glass votive holder and candle inside each, and arrange a few small, uncarved pumpkins alongside. Keep an eye on the lighted candles, and be sure to blow them out at the end of the evening.
To make pumpkin votives with miniature pumpkins, you will need miniature pumpkins, votives, floral cutters, and a hand-drill fitted with a 1 1/2-inch-wide paddle bit. If possible, get a second person to help: He or she can don a pair of work gloves and hold the pumpkin in place as you drill.
Pumpkin Votive Holders How-To
1. Using floral cutters, trim the stem from the pumpkin.
2. Center the paddle bit over the pumpkin, and drill about 1/2 inch deep.
3. Insert votive. The pumpkin can be stored in a cool, dry spot for up to one day.
