Here we are at the penultimate day of Crafty October…day 30! Halloween is TOMORROW!! I’m so excited – I love Halloween!
For today’s craft I’ve created tea-light holders from some miniature pumpkins, which are so cutely named munchkin pumpkins! And that is their actual name according to the label in the supermarket :D
There were five munchkin pumpkins left in the supermarket, so I bought all five :D They’re so tiny!
With the help of hubs and his flat boring drill bit attached to the drill, I held the pumpkins (eek!) whilst he slowly drilled down into each one…safety first people, so always be careful when using power tools.
Drill out a hole into each pumpkin…but make sure you do it in a place that you don’t mind getting pumpkin flesh everywhere!! Our drill bit was a little to small, so I had to finish off the job with a sharp knife.
Push the tea-lights down into the pumpkins – so that they sit flush with the top, and you’re all done!
I think that they look lovely all lit up – wish that there were more available to buy in the supermarket. I’d have them everywhere in the house!
Again, for safety, and you should always do this – never leave a lit candle unattended.
Aside from making these tea-light holders I’ve also been doing lots of other things for Halloween and I will blog about them tomorrow!
I’m no where near ready for Halloween though – the decorations are only just out of the shed and ready to be put out in the morning, so I will share all our decor when I’m done decorating!
I’ve still got my pumpkins to carve out…only two this year – normally I do at least six! But the pumpkin harvest seems to be bad this year and the supermarket pumpkins aren’t very big :(
And I still have to plan our dinner for tomorrow night as well…I’ve never been so dis-organised for Halloween!!
I feel tired just telling you about what I’ve got to do tomorrow! It’ll be worth it though – Halloween is my favourite time of year ^_^
