Real Pumpkin Tea Lights

Pumpkin Tea Lights


I don't remember where I saw this idea, but I thought it was so clever. I found a bag of those little tiny  pumpkins (or are they gourds?) in the produce section of my local grocery store. I think it was $2.95 for five or six of them.

So, you just hollow out the tops, making a space wide enough to sink a tea light, then set them out and light them.

Pretty simple, and I think they make such a cute fall decoration! :-)

What a great idea! They look so warm and "fallish". Our grocery store has the bags of the little pumpkins, too. I'll definately have them in my cart next time I'm at the store. Were they hard to carve out?

Actually, Terri, they were very easy to carve. I just used a paring knife, and made sure to cut straight in, rather than at an angle.They're embarrassingly simple. lol

I love this idea!
Atticus decided to grow jack-be-little pumpkins. He had two make it. They did not turn orange. More of a yellow. We will have to get some and do this fun craft, the boys will enjoy it. Thank You for sharing! :-)

Love it! I think that I am going to have to go today to the store and take these out for the grandkids to do. I'm helping a daughter today, and this will give the kids a project. I'm also impressed that you take the time to link up to all those places. It takes me forever, and I've basically quit doing it!
