Tea Light Candles
Glue gun and glue sticks
Remove cap from pumpkin as you would to make a jackolantern. Scrape seeds out from the inside. Using a sharp knife widen cap hole, maintaining roundness and centered, until tea light can be squeezed into the hole. You want it to be a tight fit or tea light will eventually slip down into the pumpkin. You want tea light to remain "suspended" in the opening.
Embellish by gluing on a "skirt" of lace trim. Tie raffia around top edge of lace and glue into place. Attach raffia bow.
Tip: Set mini pumpkins and other gourds on a mat. Do not set directly on furniture. The bottom will begin to decay first and will damage finish on furniture.
