Pumpkin Candle

Pumpkins (can use mini pumpkins, gourds, whatever you want!)
Sharp knife
Paper towels
Wax chips
Candle wicks
Candle scent

• Carve the top off the pumpkin of your choice, and place to the side.
• Scrape out the pumpkin guts and seeds, and wipe clean.
• Then in a double boiler, heat the wax fully over low heat.
• Mix in your scent of choice.
• Then, hot glue the candle wick into the pumpkin. You can use a spoon or straw to make a small indent in the bottom of the pumpkin so the wick sits easily.
• Carefully pour the hot wax into the pumpkin, until almost full.
• Give it 24 hours to fully set and harden, which can be sped up in the fridge!
• Save the top of the pumpkin as a cute lid for your pumpkin when it’s not lit.
