This time of the year is absolutely perfect for creative evenings with a good drink, nice music (or maybe a podcast) and „me time“.
It is time to relax.
So, please prepare your cup of a tea, coffee or cocoa and let‘s begin.
- mini pumpkins
- candle wax (best is to melt wax from old candles)
- candle wick (length depends on pumpkin size)
- cookie cutter
- tea spoon
- Old news paper (will be messy a bit :) )
First step is to cut out a shape with hammer and cookie cutter right into the pumpkin (in the center if possible).
Pumpkin has a beautiful and clean star shape. It is time to clean it properly. It depends on size of a pumpkin but tea spoon should be enough.
Pumpkin seeds can be cleaned, dried and used in a spring for growing mini pumpkins in a garden (or flower pot on a balcony) for next Halloween.
Once pumpkins are all cleared up and the candle wax is melted we can continue with a next step. Candle wick will be sticked with little bit of candle wax to the bottom of a pumpkin. Then the rest of a candle wax will be poured inside (careful it is hot). Let it cool down.
Pumpkin candles are ready for Halloween :)
Have a lovely time!
