Gourd Candles

Steps:9
The gourd's natural form lends a lovely organic feel to an autumnal table. And since no two gourds are ever identical, these candles are all variations on a single theme, but no two will ever be exactly alike. Use beeswax for a fresh, sweet smell and a long, slow burn.
Materials
  • Acorn squash
  • Bleached beeswax (1 pound for a 2-pound squash)
  • Paring knife
  • 6-inch chef's knife
  • Melon baller
  • Ceramist's trimming tool
  • Utility knife
  • Pencil or chop stick
  • Aniline dyes (we used gold and blue)
  • Wicks and wick tabs
  • Tin cans or "nests" of aluminum foil (to hold gourd in place as wax cools)
  • Candy thermometer
