Pumpkin Votive Holders

Steps:3
If the thought of a cadre of frightful jack-o'-lanterns gives you the chills, opt for a lovely and luminous group of votive holders instead. These gently glowing lights, cut from pumpkins in pale hues, are easy to make: Simply slice off the tops, and scoop off the flesh.
Materials
  • Miniature pumpkins
  • Votives
  • Floral cutters
  • Hand-drill fitted with a 1 1/2-inch-wide paddle bit
