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
There were five munchkin pumpkins left in the supermarket, so I bought all five 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 ^_^
