Cut off the tops of the pumpkins and scoop out the seeds. Attach the wicks to the bottom of the pumpkin. Use a piece of tin foil in glue them to the bottom of the pumpkin. Then roll the top of the wick around a pencil or skewer to it hold upright.

Melt the wax in a double broiler and pour it into the candles. Crush up a couple of cinnamon sticks and add to the wax for a yummy cinnamon smell. For a stronger smell, you can add cinnamon oil too. Then let the candles sit for a couple of hours for the wax to harden.

We experimented with adding a bit of candle wax tint to give them a more golden color. The wax looks really dark when liquid but it dries much lighter. Oh, and you can also make candles with tiny pumpkins! There’s not a lot of seeds in them – so not much room for wax – but they are super cute.
