{SavourTheSeason} Day 16: Simple Pumpkin Luminaries


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!

  3. You know what you could do? Just cut the bottom, so you have more "canvas" to work with. Then after you glen it out, sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice in there. It should stick to the sides and small really good when your pumpkin gets warm from the light. It'll smell like pie!
