Cut the top of some mini pumpkins just like you would when carving a large pumpkin. Scoop out the insides, if you have a melon baller it is great for this task.
Cut a hole in the bottom big enough to fit the base of a small battery powered tealight candle. I don't recommend a real candle for this because the flame would be much too close to the top of the pumpkin.
Draw your design on your pumpkin. I liked felt-tipped pens best for this. They drew easily on the pumpkins, but also rubbed off easily when I was done.
Drill your design into the pumpkins.
Turn on the artificial tealight and enjoy!
