This pumpkin beeswax candle was a great addition to our fall nature table. We have made it part of our seasonal tradition to make a beeswax candle at the beginning of every season or holiday. n the past we’ve made walnut candles, apple candles, seashell candles and orange peel candles. These would be great to make after going pumpkin picking, a tiny alternative to jack-o-lanterns!
PS: Can you spy the Fairy Shadow Mouse? This little handmade critter is one of my absolute favorite things I have bought my boys (look how tiny!)
- To make your pumpkin beeswax candle, first carve your pumpkin. Remove to top just as you would with a jack-o-lantern.
- Scoop the insides out with a spoon. Get the inside as clean as possible.
- Boil water in a pot, then add beeswax to your double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can use any stainless steel bowl. Be very careful removing it as to not let water in or burn yourself.
- Place a wick inside the empty pumpkin.
- Pour the melted beeswax into the pumpkin.
- Let harden.
