Our homespun, pumpkin candleholder requires no carving and takes only minutes to assemble. You’ll want to make several of these to share and decorate the harvest table this fall.
This cute, repurpose craft project makes great use of old canning jar rings. In fact, the rustier the rings, the cuter this pumpkin looks.
30 standard size, rusty canning jar rings
5 taper candles in varying heights (We used 3 orange and 2 navy blue candles)
1 thick rubber band
1 heat resistant plate or candle stand
1. Thread canning jar rings onto the twine and fashion into a circle while adding. Tie twine into a taut knot and cut off excess.
2. Gather taper candles together and place a heavy duty rubber band around the bottom of the candles to hold them firmly together.
3. Ease the candle cluster down into the center opening. The candles should fit very snugly in the center, to keep erect. Adjust the number of candles used, if necessary to ensure that the candles stand straight up, without leaning!
4. Place the pumpkin candle holder on a heat resistance plate before lighting candles to catch wax as it melts. Never leave lit candles unattended. Place out of reach of young children when lit.
