You all know by now that nothing gets me going quite like a holiday or seasonal DIY. There is something SO rewarding about making something yourself that gets showcased as part of your family’s seasonal memories. I personally LOVE entertaining during this time of year, and I’m always looking for ways to reinvent or spruce up my kitchen island and dining table. Instead of buying new candle holders for my Thanksgiving table this year, I decided to make them! There are so many cute little pumpkins at the grocery stores right now, and with a super simple DIY, you can make them shine as tabletop decor!
I’m so excited to share my DIY Fall pumpkin candle holders with you guys today! I absolutely love how these turned out, and I also love how you can make them your own! If you’re working with a more pastel or black-and-white tabletop, you can change the colors of the faux florals to match your theme. I made these a while ago and they lasted for a few weeks perfectly, so they can be used again and again during the season! Let me know if you try these cute pumpkin candle holders, and as always I love seeing your pics and videos when you tag me online!

Cut and gut
Cut a circle around the stem of the pumpkin to detach it. Using the end of a spoon or a fork, gut out the inside of the pumpkin until cleaned entirely.
Secure half the florals
Secure florals to one side of the pumpkin using a hot glue gun.
Place candle and glue
Place your taper candle inside the pumpkin and glue the remaining florals around it.
