You can make these adorable candles yourself! Hooray! It's pumpkin season, and that means it's time to make all sorts of fun candles from household objects.
I'm no Martha Stewart- this one is easy enough to do with friends, kids, or probably even your dog:).
Step one: gather your materials. You'll need a small pumpkin, wood matches, thread, and cooking oil (corn oil is pretty cheap and works nicely). Make sure you hollow your pumpkin out!
Step Two Step two: wrap thread around your match till it's covered (kind of like one of those little dolls from Mexico). The thread will act as additional fuel to keep the candle slow-burning. By the way, my nailpolish is "Just a Little Dangerous" by OPI for Sephora… the name is so appropriate for my crafting hobbies.
Step Three Step three: secure your thread-covered match in the base of the hollowed out pumpkin. Just kind of squish it in there, and then pour your vegetable oil over the top (slowly) so you leave about 1/3 of an inch of match exposed.
Step four: light your little pumpkiny ball of joy, but be careful (don't let the kiddies do this part, please)!
