These adorable pumpkin candles are the perfect autumn accessory for your home. You can use any size and color pumpkin for this project. The bigger the pumpkin, the more wax you will need to use.
Things You'll Need
Step 1: Melt the soy wax.
Fill a saucepan with water (about a quarter full), and bring to a gentle boil. Place the pitcher in the hot water and fill the pitcher with wax (about three-quarters full). Using the bamboo skewer, stir occasionally until the wax melts.

Step 2: Cut the pumpkins.
Using a pairing knife, cut out the top of the pumpkin, around the stem. Do it just like you would if you were getting ready to carve a pumpkin for Halloween.
Step 3: Clean out the inside of pumpkin.
Using a small metal spoon, remove the seeds from inside of pumpkin. Scrape until smooth.
Step 4: Add the wick and the wax.
Place a wick in the center of pumpkin, and then press it into the pumpkin flesh. Pour the melted wax into the pumpkin.
Step 5: Stabilize the wick.
Stabilize the wick using bamboo skewers and tape.
Step 6: Allow to set overnight.
Let the wax set. When you're ready to light the candle, be sure to trim the wick before lighting.
